In this 6-week course, participants will learn the fundamentals of photography including basic camera functions such as aperture, shutter speed, and ISO settings. There will be opportunities to create images on a weekly basis that explore shooting in manual mode in various lighting conditions. Some avenues of photography that will be explored include portraiture, still life and street photography. In addition, there will also be instruction for basic post-processing of images. Learn to colour correct, make lighting adjustments and export your images at the proper dimensions best suited for uploading to the web and making prints.
Please note: Students interested in taking this course must provide their own digital camera and lens with the camera’s ability to shoot in manual mode.
