Photography Fundamentals
Offered Every Fall

This course will cover everything that the beginning photographer needs to take control of their camera and move beyond the “auto” settings — including exposure, light, composition, and post-processing. It is recommended that students have a DSLR camera with manual controls in order to take full advantage of the class material.
