Adobe Lightroom has become a vital tool for the modern photographer. Adobe Lightroom is used in the photographic process to catalog, find, edit and output images in a incredibly efficient manner. This basic level course will improve your photographic organization and output by covering the essential aspects of Adobe Lightroom to make you confident and functional enough to include Lightroom in your workflow. At the end of the class, the student will understand multiple ways to bring images in to Lightroom and take advantage of the metadata features, become familiar with the basic Lightroom modules and navigation within the software, know the most commonly used tools within each Lightroom panel, use the synchronize function to reduce time in editing multiple images at once, be able to save your work in various sizes and file types, and have the ability to make prints directly form Adobe Lightroom.
This course will cover the basics of today's modern DSLR cameras. Confused by all those buttons? Don't be, learn how to best set up and use all the features on your camera. Autofocus, bracketing, continuous mode, white balance and many other concepts will be explored and practice to help create solid images. Determining proper exposure, the interplay between aperture and shutter speeds, composition, photographic techniques, and supporting equipment will be explored. In this course we will use the camera's aperture priority, shutter priority, and manual settings to make proper exposures. After taking this course a student should be able to navigate the basic functions of their camera, properly deal with image files and photograph a scene to depict it as they desire. A camera that can be manually operated is required, SLR's or mirrorless camera systems will work well. Textbook: KISS Guide to Photography by John Garrett is required. (ISBN: 0-7894-8069-7) Approximately $10.
Classes are held on the East Campus (EC) or on the main campus in the Robert E. Paap (REP) building.
