Creative Course Egg Photo - by Tim Waite, 2013

The third course in the digital photography series (the Beginning Digital Photography Course and the Intermediate Digital Photography Course), you will explore more advanced photography and composition techniques.

Over the course's six weeks, you will be given more challenging assignments, such as photographing at night and using long exposures.

In addition to a weekly technical topic to explore, we'll discuss some of history's most influential photographers. Discovering some of the styles and motivations of each of these photographers, we'll begin to understand how we create photos that show things in a way that is uniquely our own.

Each week we'll review and critique the previous week's assignment, in a group discussion.


All photographers should have taken a Beginning Digital Photography course, and have a solid understanding of the following topics:

  • The Exposure Triangle:
    • How to meter light
    • How Shutter Speed affects photos, and how to manipulate it
    • How Aperture or f-Number affects photos, and how to manipulate it
    • ISO and how it affects photos, and how to manipulate it
  • How to read the Histogram
  • How White Balance works, how it might affect photos, and how to change the settings on your camera
  • How to import photos to your camera, and how to perform some basic editing, such as converting to black & white, and cropping

All photographers will be required to have the following for each class:

  • A camera with storage card and charged battery
  • The camera's manual
  • One or more lenses

In addition to the equipment listed above, each photographer must have access to the following (not required to bring to class):

  • A tripod
