Scranton, PA (Vocus) November 29, 2010 - Stratford Career Institute has recently restyled their distance learning photography course to include more contemporary texts that offer a greater emphasis on digital photography.
Stratford says the updated texts are taken in part from a book by Michael Langford, a renowned author, teacher, and photographer who worked as the Photography Course Director at the Royal College of Art, London, UK. The texts include a comprehensive expansion on digital cameras and digital printing, as well as a broader range of sample works, fully updated timelines, and more modern technical language.
“The course maintains the important fundamentals involved in setting up and taking photographs of all kinds, but the procedural knowledge has been updated to reflect the ever-changing technology associated with today’s digital cameras,” said Dr. Claude Major, Director of Education for Stratford Career Institute.
Stratford reports that upon graduation, the student should graduate with a greater understanding of the essential techniques needed to produce a great photograph. More specific areas of study include lighting, filters, exposure measurement, composition, special effects and an entire section dedicated to employment in the photography industry.
“This course is perfect for individuals of all skill levels including those interested in working toward a professional career, enthusiasts wanting to work on technique, as well as today’s casual photographer,” added Dr. Major.
