This course will be taught as a continuation of Photo II where the participants will have more instruction and practice in using their camera on manual. Lectures and photo shoots will consist of mastering the Exposure Triangle & Depth of Field, while also learning to be more creative in your composition by understanding the Elements and Principles of Art. We will explore how subject, composition, and technique combine to communicate a narrative, emotion or abstract imagery in your photographs. By the end of the class you will not only have perfected your ability to shoot on manual, you will have moved beyond the typical snapshot and expanded into the world of creative photographic expression. In addition to photo shoots during class time, two will meet on Saturday mornings(session 1: 9/24 & 10/8) (session 2: 11/5 & 12/3) at local parks. A DSLR is needed for this class. Enrollment will include a workbook & in class photo slideshow.
Note: You must have extensive knowledge of the topics covered in Photo II before taking this class.
