Introduction to Photography

During this course, students will learn both the creative and technical skills needed to create a photograph. Students will use a DSLR camera to learn to control shutter speed, aperture, and ISO to make a correct exposure while using composition techniques like the rule of thirds, leading lines, and framing to create a stunning composition. 

Mitch Alcala is a professional photographer with over 20 years of experience.
