Introduction to Digital Photography (Thur)
Build a strong foundation for your photography and make better images by understanding exposure, metering, focus, file formats, depth of field and basic composition. Hands-on demonstrations and assignments with personalized image reviews reinforce camera systems such as shutter speed, aperture, ISO, and their artistic impact on the final photograph. Single lens reflects or mirrorless cameras are recommended. The instructor is available for camera recommendations; no need for a camera until the third class meeting.
Jon P. Manchester
A photographer and photo educator originally from Colorado, Jon P. Manchester brings 30 years of traditional and digital photography experience to the school. His understanding of fine art photography, technical image processing and post-processing has made him a valuable student resource. Manchester was influenced by his mentor, Rick Lang, the late Director of Photography at Crealdé. He says he greatly admired the way Lang related to his students, opening a collaboration of knowledge and learning as much from them as they learned from him.Instructor Bio
