In Photography 2 you continue to hone your skills as a photographer, expanding the technical skills acquired in Photo 1. You learn the basics of commercial/product photography and how to create a studio setup ‐ similar to a higher end photo studio ‐ with next to no budget. You understand and practice three‐point lighting in a real world setup, and learn the basics of the creative use of flash lighting. One of the classes is a photo shoot off campus, allowing you to practice and apply what you have learnt, we review the work in the following session. The class ends with an introduction to current photo editing and organizing tools and the workflow from camera to print, monitor and web display. Prerequisite: 55801 or equivalent experience. NOTE: Bring your digital camera and extra batteries to class. The field trip is required.

In the past, aerial photography had to be shot from manned aircraft. The hugely expanding field of Unmanned Aerial Systems (or drones) has opened up new opportunities for aerial photographers. Drones can make citizens feel like masters of the sky while the FAA scrambles to keep up with regulating unmanned aircraft. Take a close look at these gadgets, how they work, why they are in such demand, and why safety is so important yet so often overlooked. We will discuss the process of flying the drone, operating the camera, downloading the footage and editing it. Weather permitting, a flight demo will be included. Prerequisite: 55801 or equivalent experience.
