Photography: Digital SLR 1

PHOT 1931

This comprehensive introductory to digital photography course will teach you how to properly use your "digital single lens reflex (SLR)" camera in order to improve your pictures. All aspects of your camer's operation and internal menu settings will be covered. You will learn about proper digital workflow, obtaining the proper exposure, the best settings on your camera to use in order to capture the image correctly, which lens to use in various situations, how to use your camera's flash properly, composing your shots for the most impact, and valuable tips and tricks to get the most out of your photo taking experience, no matter the subject that you like to shoot. This class is suitable for both Digital SLR and Mirrorless cameras.


Tuition includes a $10 non-tax deductible fee.
Due to the pandemic, this course will not be taught in-class at the Oshawa or Whitby campuses. Instead, the instructor will deliver the course online using Zoom or another platform during the normally-scheduled class time. Assignments and tests will be posted using our Desire2Learn Learning Management System (called DC Connect). Therefore, students will need a computer with a webcam, audio and reliable high-speed Internet connectivity to participate. Due to the ongoing pandemic, we cannot predict at this time if/when we will resume in-class delivery for this course.
