Vacation Photography Course Description: 

This course is designed for students to the basic functions of the digital SLR with the intention of weaning them away from the 'auto' setting towards gaining full control of the camera and increasing their proficiency and creativity.

During the course you will learn not only about the technological aspects of digital photography such as adjusting camera settings, but you will also gain an appreciation of the composition and photographic skills necessary to shoot. Students will be allowed to go outside of the classroom to shoot assignments based on what they are learning.
