Using a modern digital camera or smart phone, almost anyone can point, click the shutter release button, and take an acceptable picture most of the time, which is a good thing. However, there is a difference between just taking pictures and Making Pictures. If you would like to move beyond taking average snapshots and learn how to make (create) really striking photos, then you need to learn a bit about how your camera works and its various controls, as well as how to use basic photo editing software (your computer most likely came with this software pre-installed). This class will teach you how to “see” in a new way, as well as how to think about and compose a photograph.
(April 13) tips on photo composition used by professional photographers
(April 20) how to use the photo editor app that came with your computer (and get even more creative after you take the shot). This program is designed for people who are relatively new to digital photography and who have basic (“home user”) computer skills. The material covered is relevant to both traditional camera and smartphone users.
