What you'll learn in this photography class:

The ubiquity of smartphones means that most of us carry a sophisticated camera and digital lab with us at all times. This class is an introduction to the understanding of photography as technology, a medium of expression, and creative practice for photographers using a smartphone. It covers basic concepts and techniques: smartphone camera operation, exposure, composition, resolution, and image file preparation for on-screen and print use. Students will look closely at historically significant photographs to deconstruct visual composition and experience the pleasure of good pictures. Assignments will include both technical and creative exercises. Learn to shoot, edit, and share great content in this online course with Houston Center for Photography.

Suggested classes to continue education:

  • Photography II
  • Printing
  • Lightroom
