Digital Photography (Adults)

As photography has gone digital, editing your photographs has become an essential component of taking photos. It’s not just capturing the moment, but enhancing it. This class explores in-depth the functions of digital cameras, but students will also develop an eye for composing photographs of the natural and built environments and gain digital-editing skills using Photoshop or in BRAC’s state-of-the-art Media Lab. Students generally work with their own digital camera, however BRAC has a number of cameras for students' use (during class time only) if they do not have their own.
