This short course, over ten Saturdays, develops the creative and technical skills necessary to capture visually superior images, both still and motion, on digital cameras. This course will also teach critical evaluation of both the student’s and other photographer’s work.
DSLR Photography – Intermediate Level course is for the students who are already familiar with cameras and know basic usage of a camera. We introduce the students to strobe lights, flashes and also how to photograph in natural light using reflectors. We introduce them to different types of strobes and reflectors which can be used for their everyday purpose. We also teach the students aesthetics of photography such as rules of framing and composition along with technical aspects such as various camera settings. We will be having 2 field trips during the course for the students to get familiar with shooting in different environments. We will also be covering basics of editing in Photoshop and Lightroom. For the final assignment, the students will create a portfolio which will include pictures taken by them during the course and present the same at a photo exhibition.
