This certificate’s photography courses introduces you to basic photographic theory, practice and techniques, all in our professional studios. With guidance from our professional photographer instructors, you will think and work visually, using photography as a tool in self-expression, visual communication and creativity. You will also master the use of manual camera controls, exposure, available light and fill flash lighting techniques. In addition, our photography classes focus on image capture techniques; creative and conceptual proficiency; practical skills such as lighting, colour and black-and-white output; and image post-production editing. You will also study commercial studio techniques and portraiture.
The proliferation of digital media, internet possibilities, and digital photography have radically altered the photographic industry.
