This course is both a personal vision and technical class, focusing on the relationship between light and color photography. It starts with seeing and perceiving light and understanding color temperature. Students examine foundational color theory and psychology in order to understand not only the how, but also the why behind the choices they make. Using advanced camera manipulation and Lightroom, students move beyond basic image processing and learn how to control color and light to evoke emotion, pushing boundaries with creative curves for color enhancement, dodging and burning, manipulating texture, and more.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Intermediate: You are familiar with a camera, whether film or digital. You understand aperture, shutter speed, exposure, white balance, histograms, and how to control focus. You are comfortable editing and processing your images. You may want to learn how to utilize your camera in a more thoughtful and articulate way, or learn more about lighting or how to utilize theoretical concepts in relation to your portfolio of work.

Courses are subject to minimum enrollment. Please register early, within five days of the start-date, to reduce the likelihood of course cancellation and to ensure you receive all course-related materials in time to prepare for class.
