Intermediate Digital Photography
—NEW!
 
Prerequisites: Introductory Photography course or the equivalent experience
 
This is an intermediate photography course. Students will review functions of the camera including shutter priority, aperture priority, ISO, exposure compensation, and how these work together. Participants will learn the process of image processing. You will review the technical aspects of printing. Students will be introduced to more advanced compositional skills and aesthetics of both shooting and printing photographs. You will participate in weekly class critiques where your assignments will be discussed both technically and aesthetically. Though any camera is acceptable, DSLR cameras are preferred, and will be the primary focus for this course. The course will build on your understanding of basic photography, reinforce your application of photographic fundamentals and increase your visual awareness and photographic compositional skills.
 
Registrants are expected be familiar with the controls on your camera (e.g., how to access aperture priority, shutter priority, ISO and exposure compensation), and have taken an introductory photography course or have equivalent knowledge. Please contact the instructor at npajim@aol.com, to make sure you have sufficient background to participate in this Intermediate level course. Students are expected to bring images to class for weekly discussions.

have been taken by many RCC members. The prices are very reasonable and include
all room, food, tips, etc, as well has injury insurance during the tour. They have high
caliber tour leaders and have special rates for single, double and triple occupancy rooms.
The only thing which is generally not included is your transportation to and from the tour.
