All Continuing Education students have the opportunity to exhibit their work within DCAD’s Toni & Stuart B. Young Gallery at the annual Continuing Education Exhibition.

Classes are open to the community as part-time, non-degree courses of study.

IPHONE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

SIX SESSIONS

Non-Credit Tuition: $250.00; 2 CEUs
Lab / Material Fee: $35.00
This workshop introduces a new photography medium where the photographer captures images using the camera built into the Apple iPhone (including iPod Touch and iPad), and Android devices. Students will learn how to capture and process incredible, high-quality still images. While the capabilities of an iphone are limited, you’ll be surprised at the amount of robust processing power that is in this small instrument. Students will learn how to apply the classic photographic principles of exposure, light and composition: elements that are important to any good photograph. After the shoot, you will learn how to process your images using select photo editing apps. Via numerous examples, photo assignments, field trips, and in-class critiques, you will be inspired to use this dynamic, new medium on a daily basis. This course is open to beginners as well as experienced photographers.
