NEW! ONLINE! Intro to Film Photography
The class starts with understanding the foundation of all photography: light! Learning to take photographs manually -- by adjusting the aperture, shutter speed, and ISO of any camera-- is a great way of learning photography. This method teaches students to learn how to control light and create an image using film cameras. Via Zoom meetings students will learn the exposure triangle: aperture, shutter speed, and ISO how they work together to create a photograph. Other topics include composition, types of film, types of cameras and how to develop film and print negatives. This course also includes 1 on 1 darkroom instruction at 250th Community Darkroom located at Mill No. 5 in Lowell. Students are required to bring their own film camera. Please contact instructor Tory Wesnofske at and let her know what camera you intend to use. (15 hours ) $250

Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud
Have you ever seen photographs that were ripped or faded, then perfectly restored and wondered, how did they do that? Perhaps you have marveled at the way a portrait can be transformed to make the subject matter appear 10 years’ younger or how people can be added or deleted to a scene. This course will cover batch processing images, advanced masking techniques, special effects and filters. We will explore the exciting possibilities in High Dynamic Range Photography (HDR), the current creative trend in image manipulation. Photoshop Creative Cloud has become an essential tool for professional and amateur photographers and is considered to be "Today’s Darkroom". This class is taught in a MAC lab. Eligible for 50% tuition waiver for MCC employees (15 Hours) $209
Spring dates TBD
