Advanced photography offered to general public
Posted: Friday, September 23, 2011 6:03 pm
Anyone wishing to be more creative with their digital photography is invited to participate in a course offered by the University of Tennessee at Martin Office of Extended Campus and Online Studies.
It will be offered on Tuesdays, Oct. 4-25, from 6:30-9 p.m. The registration fee is $125.
Students will be instructed in the creative use of filters, tripods, multiple lenses and flash photography. Wildlife, landscape, flower and fine art photography will be featured subjects.
The course will include lectures on the use of low light, nighttime, high dynamic range and panoramic camera settings. Students may also be exposed to basic use of Photoshop and other digital image manipulation software. Email evaluations and photograph critiques will be used throughout the course.
Instruction will take place either in the classroom or in the field, depending on weather and the week’s subject matter. At least one off-campus trip to a local site will be scheduled during one of the regular classroom time periods.
Dr. Tom Gallien will instruct the course. Gallien has over 40 years of photographic experience and studied under the personal supervision of several professional photographers. Those interested may view a limited number of his images at www.molliebiscuit.com. All participants are required to bring a tripod, a notepad and their camera’s instruction manual.
