Intensive Digital Camera
This 10-week class is specifically designed for the beginner looking to gain substantial knowledge of digital photography, establish a solid command of their digital SLR camera and challenge themselves visually to make interesting and exciting photographs. In this accelerated course, the basic digital photographic skills taught in the Digital Camera I course are combined with some of the more advanced techniques taught in the Digital Camera II workshop to create an intense, comprehensive foundation in digital photography.
Through weekly in-class lecture, demonstration and critique, students will gain a thorough understanding of how to use their digital cameras and how to elevate their image-making from snapshot to photograph. Weekly assignments will reinforce each lesson and encourage students to apply their new skills to whatever subjects they choose to photograph. This beginner course is a great immersion in photography and will prepare students for many of the more specialized courses offered in the NESOP workshop program.
No previous photographic experience is required for this course. All students must have their own DSLR or Mirrorless camera with adjustable exposure settings.
