Course Description

Confused by all of those buttons on your DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex)? Get ready to take control of your camera with Instructor Steven Broome!

This course explores the myriad of functions available in today's popular digital-SLR cameras and how they relate to great picture-taking. Exposure modes, white balance, shutter speeds, and f/stops will be among the many topics covered.

Participants should bring their camera and owner's manual to the first class.

The course includes a two-hour Saturday shooting workshop on January 30, 2016. The instructor and class will meet to take photos at a time and location to be determined. Participants will share their images and participate in a class discussion to improve learned techniques at the final session.

The 1st of 3 courses within Photography Certificate Program: Photography I, Photography II and Adobe Photoshop CS6. The Photography courses may be taken individually or linked together for completion of the Photography Certificate.

About the Instructor: Photography is an art form like no other. It captures a particular moment and freezes reality for one precious second. For Steven Broome, photography has been his life’s joy since he got his first camera in the fourth grade. As part of the UCM family, Steven channels his passion into creating stories and memories through photography and other visual technology. Steven has been part of the University of West Georgia family for more than two decades, having received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the university and joining the staff in 1989. He has received several honors, including an APEX Award of Excellence for a photo taken on campus just following September 11, 2001, as well as being part of the team that won a CASE Gold Award for Campaign Publications during the UWG Centennial. As Associate Director of Visual Services, Steven supervises a team of skilled photographers and videographers who work hard at showing the story behind UWG and what makes it great. He finds inspiration in the unbridled spirit embodied by the UWG community. Steven collects old cameras, a collection that has grown to include approximately 100 different types. In his words: “these are the tools that allowed regular people to document their own history, and it's that vernacular history that I find very interesting.”
