Langara Photo-Imaging Program – Photo 2238 with Catharine O’Brien-Bell

Alright,

Another post in an effort to digitize all of the work I did in the Langara Professional Photo-Imaging Program. You can see all the previous posts here. In the second semester of the program Photo 2238 focused on Studio Techniques. The assignments in this course were:

  • Scavenger Hunt
  • Fall Fashion Concept
  • Surfaces
  • Architecture
  • Multiple Exposure / Motion Control
  • Food
  • Beverage Illustration
  • Same Item
  • Creative Display
  • Photojournalism

Most of these assignments were an extension of all the skills I had learned in previous courses, so for the sake of brevity I won’t re-list them. You’re welcome to read all the previous courses here.

Until the next binder…

Another post in an effort to digitize all of the work I did in the Langara Professional Photo-Imaging Program. You can see all the previous posts here. In the second semester of the program Photo 1248 focused on the use of Photoshop, my favorite. The assignments in this course were:

  • Color Correction

Through this Photoshop course I learned how to:

  • Scan reflective and transmissive originals to professional standards

  • Utilize tools with a full comprehension of their purpose
  • Create Composite images
  • Implement ICC based color management
  • Analyze images to determine a color correction strategy
  • Explain the resolution requirements of web vs print
  • Use actions to work more efficiently

This was one of my favorite classes in the program and a majority of what I learned in this course I still use on a daily basis.

By far my favorite assignments were the Macro and Night shot assignments. I really liked being able to show people a perspective/exposure they don’t usually get to experience with their eyes alone.
