The Art of Image

Adding the “wow” factor

You’ve probably taken many photos in your life and have already developed some basic photographer skills. And if you’ve practiced enough, you likely have some good photos to show for it.  

But photography requires more than a good eye and steady hand. After an image is captured, there’s still work to be done. 

In our program, you’ll acquire the skills to take the best shot and add the “wow” after the fact using both digital and 35mm techniques.

For a look at all the courses in our program, consult the course list.
