Digital photography has made high-quality images more accessible than ever. Great pictures come from a combination of a good photographic eye and learning particular techniques. In this course, we will discuss the basics of composing a great picture with a focus on two areas. In the first 10 class, we will discuss capturing portraits and retouching those images with tools like Adobe Photoshop. In the second class, we will discuss landscape photography and processing images with high dynamic range (HDR) techniques.

Adam Hill is a chemistry professor at SLU. He received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley. He specializes in spectroscopy - the study of light’s interactions with matter. From that professional work, he is also a photographer whose work is published in magazines.
