Students will develop basic photographic skill sets in composition, lighting and angles to create compelling images.  This class will concentrate on the exposure matrix to demonstrate how ISO, shutter speed and aperture effect exposure, motion and depth of field.  Composition will be studied through the analysis of historic and contemporary photographs so that the students will be able to create compelling imagery.  Adobe Bridge and Photoshop will be used for basic editing and image adjustments.

Transfer of College credit after attending through Early College Programs
Students who subsequently enroll in Dual Enrollment or Early College courses enjoy advanced standing. Many colleges and universities will generally accept credits earned through programs of this type. Some will not. Most colleges and universities will accept credits from other institutions if a grade of “C” or better is earned. The student and/or their parents/guardian should contact the college or university of their choice to determine whether Dual Enrollment or Early College credits will be accepted. Students may have to send an official transcript from the partnering higher education institution to the college or university of their choice to aid in the college’s decision. Each institution applies these credits differently.
