Digital Photography 101Are you new to digital photography? In this hands-on series, develop all the foundations of a well-rounded photographer. Explore photography techniques, exposure and light management, and camera skills and settings. If you’ve ever wanted to learn about f-stops, shutter speeds, and those mysterious buttons on your new camera, this is your course! A Digital SLR camera (or equivalent) is required. This class will meet inside CVU. Please wear a mask and check in at the front entrance before your first class.
The Digital Darkroom 101- Photo Editing in Adobe PhotoshopLearn the art of “developing” your digital photographs with the powerful Adobe Photoshop software to process your pictures into spectacular pieces of art. In this series, use CVU’s computers to practice basic universal enhancement tools (crop, saturation, contrast, etc.), import and organize your photography portfolio, and practice more nuanced techniques (tones, curves, filters, etc.) for polishing snapshots into professional-quality photographs. Post-processing is an art, whether it be removing red-eye, retouching a polaroid, or invoking fantastical tones in a moody landscape. This class will meet inside CVU. Please wear a mask and check in at the front entrance before your first class.
Beginner Darkroom PhotographyLearn the magic of the darkroom! This class will introduce the basics of using a manual film camera, developing your film, and printing your images.

Students will have the option to purchase additional film or paper if they find themselves needing more than the basic kit. This class will meet inside CVU.
