What you'll learn in this photography class:

In this six-session course, a logical continuation for students who have completed both Basic Photography and After the Basics: Intermediate Photography, students will continue to learn basic camera operation and photography fundamentals while practicing and refining their personal process for achieving a unique photographic vision.

The course focuses on analyzing and practicing the basic technical capture of photographs and using cameras to interpret the world around them. Assignments will guide students towards the creation of a project – a series of images with a common theme and style. During the run of the course, students will be introduced to basic features Adobe Lightroom. The software allows viewing, organizing and retouching large numbers of digital images. In addition, students will learn the “capture to print” process by selecting a singular favorite image from their projects for printing.

The goal of the course is to have students fully understand photography fundamentals and digital camera operation, create a series of images that are thematically and stylistically unified, and to understand basic archiving and post-production principles using Adobe Lightroom.

Part of this course will be taught in LACP’s digital lab. Students will have their own workstation (or share if enrollment is greater than 10) equipped with a 27″ iMac computer loaded with Adobe Lightroom CC and Adobe Photoshop CC. Bamboo Pen & Touch digital tablets will be available if needed.

Prerequisite:After the Basics: Intermediate Photography, or equivalent experience and instructor approval.
