Available versions:

  • 9 sessions (including exhibit)
  • 5 sessions (optional exhibit)

Requirements: a digital camera with manual settings (Aperture & Shutter speed).

Level of Knowledge Assumed: Digital Photography I or equivalent, Photo II recommended.

Course Structure Suggestion: Photo I Studio & Lighting and PortraiturePhoto Journalism and/or Wedding Photography (in this order or in parallel).

Note: Should the assigned instructor become suddenly unavailable, we’ll allocate a substitute instructor.
