It's all about light! Whether you are new to digital photography, or an experienced photographer ready to explore all the features of your DSLR camera, this course is just right for you. This participant-driven, collaborative workshop features hands-on instruction, weekly assignments, and photography on or near campus, along with classroom time for discussion, introduction of new topics, and the review and critique of participants' photographs each week. Weekly photography opportunities may include: sunset on the James River, light-painting, a visit to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, indoor and flash photography, studio photography, sports and action, performance, landscape, and architecture. Hands-on instruction will include: shooting in Aperature, Shutter (Tv) and Manual modes, the exposure triangle, the creative triangle, white balance, metering, depth of field, exposure compensation, composition, focus modes, and more! The emphasis of this workshop is all about the photograph, the photographer, your camera, and light (rather than editing and digital imaging).
