In this 4 week class students will learn the critical elements of photography that will set their work apart from the "point and shoot" or phone camera that is everywhere. We will explore what makes a great image, from composition and content, to creative camera controls, within 4 great themes of photography: the Urban Landscape, the Portrait, the Still Life and the Photograph as Narrative.   

This class involves field trips, demonstrations, in class critiques, online resources and access to Nikon D3000 cameras and iMac computers. The class will learn basic digital photographic work flow with Apple iPhoto, where each student will create a photo book to take home and then move on to using Adobe Photoshop and Bridge CS6.  

Although we use computers for digital work flow, the emphasis of this class is in capturing a great image in camera not creating one in the computer.
