COURSE DESCRIPTION: Digital Photography 101
During the 10-week structure of the course, students will learn digital photography while working at their own individual skill level. Using the digital camera of their choice, they will explore lighting, color, texture, composition, and other subject matter to achieve a solid grounding in both technical and creative photographic processes.
Registered students will have their assignments posted at a special section of the site for viewing and critiquing by the instructor. A Discussion Board for exclusive use of the class and instructor will provide interaction and feedback.
Limited to 10 registered students. Only registered students will have full access to the lectures, have their work posted and critiqued, interact with the instructor, and use the Discussion Board. Level: Beginner through Intermediate.firstname.lastname@example.org

HOW THE COURSE IS TAUGHT
Each week, the instructor posts the upcoming creative assignment in detail (along with reading material and photographic examples) at a location that can be accessed only by registered students. If students have any questions about the upcoming assignment, they can either post them on the Discussion Board or email the instructor.
Students also are given technical exercises- from which they are to draw their own conclusions through a series of questions that are posed. Technical exercise photos are not posted but are discussed at the Discussion Board should students have questions about the results.
Students submit six of their best photographs from the creative assignments which are then posted by the instructor each week along with his detailed comments.
