Welcome to Course THREE! In the first two Modules you will gain a more professional-level understanding of the Design Elements that artists have used throughout history to create successful compositions. Arranging the Elements in ways that lead viewers through their compositions is an essential craft for photographers no matter whether their subject matter is pure documentary or vividly exotic personal expression. In Modules 3 & 4 we survey the essential elements of post-photography image management, using Adobe(tm) LIGHTROOM(tm). Image adjustment software designed for Smartphone photographers rounds out the Course. Since even photographers whose mainstay is a high-end DSLR also must admit to Smartphone use occasionally, and photographers who only use a Smartphone will usually admit that they want to step over to a "regular" camera at some point, there is something for everyone here! Let's get started with Module One!

TOP REVIEWS FROM PRINCIPLES OF PHOTO COMPOSITION AND DIGITAL IMAGE POST-PRODUCTION
Interesting content presented well. Learned many new things and I like the quizzes as well as peer-review.
Highly recommend it.
Thanks to both the professors, I learned various aspect of the photography and learned about the design elements and sound knowledge of composition.
The best part of this course was an introduction to Adobe Lightroom. Although, I was left feeling as if there should have been one or two more weeks to this course- it seemed rushed.
This course and the specialization have given me confidence that I can continue building my photography skills and possibly switch career paths in the future.
