Topics include using a 35mm camera, Film and Digital DSLR, black and white film choices, camera formats, lenses, ISO, aperture, shutter speeds, taking a light meter reading, depth of field and basic lighting techniques. In addition, they are exposed to optional photography equipment for shooting such as a tripod, cable release, hand held light meter and flex fold.  In this 10-week course, students achieve their own photographs that consider composition and shooting in natural lighting conditions such as bright light, low light and extreme low light.
