Virginia Commercial Photography I A/B

Few recent technical innovations have changed an industry as fundamentally as digital photography has changed everything about the way we capture our lives in the way we take, edit, store, and share pictures. Virginia Commercial Photography I is a two-semester course that provides a practical, hands-on guide to help students understand the skills required to achieve success in photography careers. This course will cover various topics, such as types of photography, using digital cameras, photographic lighting and composition, manipulating images, printing photos, darkroom development, evaluating photographs, and print production. By the end of the courses, students will learn how to create a photography portfolio. The course is based on Virginia state standards for Career and Technical Education (CTE) to help students develop technical knowledge and skills needed for success in the photography industry.
