Do you love taking photographs? Maybe you look at someone else's photos, and you think, "Wow, that is amazing... I wish I knew how to do that!" Perhaps you sometimes get a great shot, and you want to know how to do so more consistently? In this class, we go over digital photography from start to finish; all the components to give you the tools to create really great photographs will be covered. We begin by understanding how to use a digital camera; no more auto mode! We then study all the pieces that make a photograph what it is: exposure, composition, lighting, etc. Finally, we go over how to turn a picture you like into a photograph you love by using post-processing (the secret weapon of many great photographers!). By the end of this class, you will be able to begin answering the question: "What makes a photograph good?", and you will be well on your way to getting the great photos that you love!
