Photography II: From Idea to Image

Now that you know the basics of your DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex), let's start turning those ideas into photographic reality!

This course is designed to give you a more in-depth understanding of exposure and will cover image composition, subject matter, and - most importantly - lighting. Class assignments will be given to help you learn to "see" unique photographic opportunities out of the seemingly ordinary.

The course meets from 6:30-9pm on six consecutive Tuesdays at UWG Carrollton. The course also includes a two-hour Saturday shooting workshop/filedwork on Saturday, 3/27. The instructor and class will meet to take photos at a time and location to be determined.

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

The 2nd of 2 Courses within Photography Certificate Program: Photography I and Photography II Photo I and Photo II must be taken in sequence for completion of the Photography Certificate, thus Photo I is a prerequisite of Photo II.

By registering for a UWG Continuing Education program, I authorize Continuing Education the right to photograph me and to use the photographs in all formats and media for any purpose, including for education, marketing and trade purposes. I hereby release Continuing Education from all claims arising out of the use of the photographs, including without limitation all claims for compensation, libel, invasion of privacy or violation of copyright ownership.

If you require additional information or clarification, please contact Erika McClain at emcclain@westga.edu or 678.839.6611.


In order to maintain social distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are limiting registrations for this face-to-face Photo II course. At this time, the maximum number of Photo II students in Spring 2021 will be 11 and masks will be required in class. Please add your name to the waiting list if/when the 11 course slots are filled.

Effective July 15, 2020, USG institutions, including UWG, will require all faculty, staff, students, and visitors to wear an appropriate face covering while inside campus facilities/buildings where six feet of social distancing may not always be possible. Face covering use will be in addition to, and is not a substitute for, social distancing. Anyone not using a face covering when required will be asked to wear one or must leave the area. Repeated refusal to comply with the requirement may result in discipline through the applicable conduct code for faculty, staff, or students. Reasonable accommodations may be made for those who are unable to wear a face covering for documented health reasons. Our goal with all guidelines and practices is to build a culture of mutual respect among members of the UWG community. UWG Employees, please select the billing option and contact Continuing Education for assistance with an internal transfer if your department will be paying for your registration.
Fee: $150.00

Steven Broome

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 UWG family, Steven channels his passion into creating stories and memories through photography and other visual technology.

Steven grew up in Chickamauga, TN, but has lived in Carrollton for most of his life. He 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 and retiring in 2020. 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. His latest career highlight is being part of the team in charge of UWG’s “Go West” campaign.

As former Associate Director of Visual Services, Steven supervised 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.”
