Course details

This course is designed for those who are confident with the fundamentals of digital photography and are now ready to broaden one's skills by refining shooting style and expanding on elements of design. Each session will explore multiple approaches to photography, with the aim of challenging one's understanding of visual aesthetics. Students will learn what's essential to add and subtract from the scene in order to obtain an intriguing and unique composition, and more importantly how to fill the frame with a distinguishable narrative. There is an emphasis on using the camera's shutter speed creatively to generate unusual and impactful photographs. Students will have the opportunity to explore Street, Documentary and Landscape Photography, while relying on one's own judgement to turn mundane situations into extraordinary moments. We finish off this course by optimizing the highlights, shadows, color shades and tones in Adobe Photoshop. Use of a DSLR or Mirrorless camera (not supplied by BCIT) is REQUIRED for the duration of this course. Compact cameras and GoPros are NOT acceptable. BCST 1198 is suggested, but not required to take this course. Students with a solid understanding of manual camera operations are welcome.
