With a focus on all aspects of photography, this course is designed to assist all students in refining their photography skills, but participants must have some basic understanding of ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed. Students can expect to add to their digital workflow, learn and push new skills, and refine the “focus” of their photography. To accomplish this goal, we will look at photographers and their work, discuss techniques they used and determine how to incorporate those ideas and techniques into our own work. This course is a classroom and field experience that will have participants learning how to use their digital camera and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom software. The instructor will be flexible to meet the needs of the participants, but students can expect to be “exposed” to flash/studio lighting, advanced editing and Photoshop, and using specialty equipment. Dan Lovell is the instructor for this class and has been a photographer and photography instructor for over ten years. See samples of Dan’s work at www.dglphoto.com.
NOTE: Students will be required to bring their own SLR camera and owner’s manual with them to each class. Students must also provide their own Apple compatible portable hard drive or a USB storage device with a minimum capacity of 32 GB.
