At the Photography Institute you can develop technical and aesthetic skills in photography using digital cameras. The Institutes focus is on camera techniques, lighting methods, and the use of computer software (Adobe Photoshop) for enhancing and refining images and for printing digital files.
Students learn how to see and compose images through the cameras eye and are encouraged to develop personal concepts by solving fundamental visual problems specific to the photographic image. Explore black-and-white photographic tools and techniques, including the operation of the single lens reflex (SLR) camera, how to determine proper exposures, and the chemical process for developing 35mm negatives and prints. Develop skills in presentation methods and archiving. Both the experienced and the inexperienced photographer are welcome. Program instructors will help students build a portfolio and offer constructive critiques.
