Today's digital cameras and software packages offer constantly improved features and enhancements for taking great photos but the photographer is still the key element in creating high quality images. This College Certificate program offers the recreational photographer a solid range of photographic skills and techniques for composing and editing photos to high standards. Students experiment with picture-taking in a variety of settings, planning and composing shots, using different lighting effects, editing and storing with current Photoshop software, and then presenting and sharing the images in a variety of digital formats. Students build confidence as they develop a portfolio of high quality images, through applied practice and professional guidance.
