Want to be a better photographer?

Beyond the Photograph offers a program of twelve weeks of digital storytelling lessons designed to help you learn more about your digital SLR camera, get better pictures from it and develop your own narrative voice.

Everything from ISO settings to file formats, dpi to online photo labs, and digital noise to color balance will be covered. The basic fundamentals of photography (composition, lenses, flash, shutter speed) will be investigated in weekly assignments. The class stresses picture stories and the visual language of the photograph.

Students will learn to recognize the different qualities of light and how each quality has it’s own mood and language. We’ll cover the concept of three-dimensional depth and how to use light and lenses to enhance the feeling of distance in pictures. Creating a sense of the passage of time and motion through creative shutter speed will be introduced, as well as how to use the camera’s white balance settings to insure rich color.”

I took one of Craig’s courses and if you are at all interested in photography, and really learning how to use your camera, you will not find a better teacher anywhere. I highly recommend this course!
