Course Description:

In this course, we will explore digital photography. We will start with the basics such as understanding the history of photography and the evolution of the camera and take a deeper dive into the technical elements of digital SLR (DSLR) photography. We will discuss the various parts and controls on the camera and how they influence the final picture, and we’ll focus on the elements of image exposure and the effect of these elements on composition. Through diving into various forms of photography, including nature and wildlife photography, portrait photography, food photography, long exposure, and creative photography, we will discuss how the camera controls can be creatively manipulated to produce such images. At the end of this course, students should be able to create a portfolio of their photography which exhibits their artistic style.
