BCST 2198 - Photography II: Master Your Framing

Broadcast Communications Part-time Studies Course

School of Business + Media

To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. All PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.

Course Details

​After focusing on the fundamentals of digital photography, now it is time to improve and broaden your photography skills by refining your shooting style and expanding on it using elements of design. Each session, we will review a different approach in photography, with the aim of challenging the students to empower their understanding of visual aesthetics. You will learn why it is essential to add and subtract from the scene, how to evaluate the shot deliberately in order to obtain a complex composition and more importantly, how to fill up the frame with a distinguishable narrative. Utilizing cameras’ shutter speed creatively to generate unusual and impactful photographs, is also covered in this course. Students will have the opportunity of exploring Street, Documentary, Cityscape, Narrative andLong Exposure Photography; while relying on their own judgement to turn mundane situations to extraordinary moments.
