Take your skills a step further. This course focuses on mastering the composition and design of your images. Students will learn to quickly and efficiently work with and manipulate framing, light effects, focus, depth of field, and motion control in order to achieve outstanding images that go beyond the technique control and more into developing a style. Techniques learned in class will be applied to various photo fields such as documentary, landscape and studio-type scenarios. Course will also include basic editing, weekly assignments, in-class shooting, and the review of the work of the masters of photography, This course is a must do for and highly recommended before moving on to any more specialized course, such as portraiture, documentary or studio lighting. Students are expected to already know exposure and be comfortable using their cameras. $305-$355.
