3046. ADVANCED DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY: COMPOSITION AND EQUIPMENT—at The Century Center: Thursday, 6-8:20pm, May 31-June 21 AND Saturday, 11am-1:20pm June 30 (5 classes)
11:00 am to 1:20 pm
Are you familiar with basics of photography, such as effectively composing images, using aperture- and shutter-priority, the exposure triangle and depth of field? Are you also comfortable with digital photography with some understanding of workflow, file formats, white balance and color management? In this 4-week class, we continue with more compositional considerations in creating artful images for effect, such as balance, symmetry and asymmetry, golden ratio, golden spiral, triangulation, and avoiding “mergers.” We consider color theory to help in creating pleasing images. We problem-solve several potentially challenging shooting scenarios. Also, we discuss equipment choices that you may want to make, including tripods, monopods, and other portable stabilizing devices. For Digital SLR (DSLR) users, we consider types of lenses that may be useful for you. We discuss shooting in fully manual mode as well as “RAW” mode and present trade-offs of RAW vs. JPG photography.
*Please note: This class takes place at the Century Center at the intersection of Weaver and Greensboro Streets in Carrboro.
