Four areas of instruction will be emphasized: How cameras work, how composition works, how lighting works, how to use photo editing software. Students will shoot assignments most often outside of class. Class will be structured around students having time to cull & edit their images (using the software Lightroom), having a full class share/critique & then instruction on a new topic. The most useful part of classroom instruction will be review of photos students have shot. Students need an SLR Digital Camera and some images on a memory card that you want to download and work with for the first class. An Adobe subscription is recommended: https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/photography/compare-plans.html  Instructor will provide instructions on options to choose the first class day.
