Wedding photographs tell a story and last a lifetime. Photographs, as important as these, should be handled with caring hands, a thoughtful eye, and a focus on detail. This course is designed for experienced amateurs as well as those who are interested in becoming professional photographers. Discussion and demonstration will focus on, among many topics, the use of the flash, lighting, and candid vs. posed photos. Learn how to create wedding and coffee-table albums, where to upload your wedding photos, and about wedding contracts, pricelists, websites, and advertising. Two sessions will meet off-campus at different Wedding Houses with live models. One session will meet in a computer lab for color correcting and adjusting photographs.
Offered again in Spring 2014!
