About the Class:
In Photography I, students learn about the basics of photography. Students learn how shutter speed, aperture and ISO affect their photos. The basis of the class is in photojournalism. Students must take photos at one event every month. Students will typically photograph these events outside of class. During class, students learn about and practice different styles of commercial photography like food and street photography and portraitures. Students also learn how to use the essential applications such as, Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop.
Photography II and III students work on more advanced, independent projects while also working with the publications to get high quality images.
Besides initial lessons, students typically have plenty of class time to work on their projects. Students are free to do as they please as long as they meet deadlines for submitting content. Stringham acts as an adviser for the classes and the publications.
