Ivy Tech to offer two digital photography seminars

The Professional Practices course concludes the digital photography seminar series that began last fall; the free seminar commences the college’s next series.

KOKOMO, Ind. — Ivy Tech Community College will be offering two digital photography seminars this May: a Professional Practices seminar, which concludes a series of classes that began last fall, and a free digital photography seminar, the opening seminar to the college’s next digital photography seminar series. Both courses will be offered in Kokomo through Ivy Tech’s Department of Workforce and Economic Development.

The Professional Practices course will prepare participants to operate a studio by detailing how to set up a studio, photograph special events, and advertise and market a business. Other topics will include copyrights, invasion of privacy, as well as model and property releases. This course will run on Fridays, May 6 – 27, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The cost of the course is $65.

The free digital photography seminar, which is an introduction to the college’s Digital Photography Series, will address standard digital camera features and controls, best practices for composing outdoor scenes for more striking photos, and lighting basics that will create exciting photographs. The course will run from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, May 7.
