Using Rome as our canvas space/playground, students will engage weekly with the city (on-site) to understand the complexities of: composition, exposure, aperture, speed, and light to fully realize and capture the beauty of this monumental city. Students will learn to shoot using a variety of techniques and lenses to understand their inherent pros and cons in Rome, while also learning the fundamentals of the exposure triangle, composition, and post production to produce aesthetically pleasing photographs of Rome. Photographs will be presented (online) locally and internationally.
