This photography course will cover phases of the expressive photographic process, from setting up the tripod to signing the mounted and window matted exhibition print. Integral to the classroom discussion will be the presentation of individual student’s work as we identify the emotional triggers that caused us to take these photographs. A comparison between your instructor’s (pre-Photoshop) and (post-Photoshop) images will be viewed. Students will venture into the beautiful Delaware landscape to learn about cropping in camera, camera placement, lens selection and vertical or horizontal orientation. Subjects such as filter use, preserving image detail and long exposure techniques will be covered. A “boot camp” approach to Photoshop will be taught. Finally students will mount and mat an archival print of their image. Equipment required: A DSLR camera that can operate in manual mode and a laptop with Photoshop (Photoshop Elements) loaded on the computer.
