Our “Unforgettable Digital Photography” course does not focus on the technical aspects of becoming a better photographer but instead teaches the student how to see life creatively and to document their daily experiences through beautiful images. For this photography course there is no fancy equipment required, and we will explore the six essential principles of “seeing like a photographer” as outlined the course textbook: 1) Shoot the Moment, Not the Subject, 2) Keep It Real, 3) Embrace Intimacy, 4) Move Your Eye, 5) See The Light and 6) Feel the Rhythm. You will complete this course with an understanding of what it means to be a visual storyteller and have four series of photographs that will illustrate the beauty in your daily life and inspire you to continue taking meaningful and stunning photographs.
