Certificate in Professional  Photography (Documentary) 

MODULES

DIGITAL IMAGING: ADOBE PHOTOSHOP AND LIGHTROOM

Instead of learning Photoshop and Lightroom separately, the new Digital Imaging I module combines both these essential software into a single course. This not only allows for an easier cross learning between the two software, but also allows students to gain a more comprehensive understanding of how Photoshop and Lightroom can compliment each other to reach greater editing and re-touching heights.

DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY

The camera is capable of capturing important events and decisive moments, but not all pictures are of flash and brilliance. Sometimes the photographer takes a step back, reflects, and becomes an author to their shots. In Documentary Photography, students will learn what it takes to be a professional documentary photographer - the proper code of conduct, ethics, planning and execution etc. They will also learn tips to scale from 1000 photos to 10, different methods of editing and continuity of a professional documentary.

FUNDAMENTALS OF PHOTOGRAPHY

This module delves first into the history of photography and the documentation of its advancements. The technical skills needed to operate a DSLR camera in manual mode will then be taught through theoretical and practical means, giving students the trust and confidence to operate a professional camera. Through this course, students will also learn to develop and master the ‘eye’ for photography through assignment practice. The aim of this module is to equip students with the fundamental skills and techniques needed in order to operate a professional DSLR.

NATURAL AND STUDIO LIGHTING

What is light; what is light in photography? Students who go through this module will fully understand the effects of light and how it can create or destroy. The various types of light sources (both natural and artificial/studio lights) and how to correctly use them to your advantage will be taught through theoretical and practical examples. The module also aims to get students to be familiar with the different types of studio lighting & equipment and how to operate them professionally and efficiently.
