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.
