Advanced Digital Photography

Download

Location: William and Ida Friday Center for Continuing Education

Cost: 60

Contact: Jill Conrad

Description: Did you know that 95 percent of your digital images are not properly exposed, no matter how expensive your camera and lenses? That’s because digital cameras have a fundamental flaw that prevents them from properly exposing for highlights—a must in digital photography. To take images that really “POP!” you need to consistently achieve proper exposure in any lighting. You will learn a simplified version of Ansel Adams’ Zone system specifically designed for digital photography. In a non-technical, easy to comprehend manner, you will also learn how digital cameras work. By combining this knowledge with proven Zone techniques, you will be able to break the tyrannical bonds of “neutral gray” and truly master digital photography. By pre-visualizing your image before pressing the shutter you will also be able to produce properly exposed or artistic images that you thought were beyond your ability. You will no longer be bound by your camera’s metering limitations and your finished images will be a truer representation of the scene and your vision, not just a result of some internal camera settings. Your images will take on a whole new look, with fuller contrast ranges and more vibrant colors and tones. You will also learn composition techniques, basic group posing and more. This is a hands-on course, so bring your DSLR camera or advanced point and shoot with Manual mode, its manual, lenses, fresh spare batteries and extra blank memory cards. Q&A sessions augment the lecture and in-class assignments. An additional materials fee of $15 is payable to the instructor for a CD with valuable advanced photography software that will enhance image taking after the class.
