Course Code: CEPH 209
CEPH 109 is saved and filed away. Now, it's time to move on. Open a new file and get to work improving your ability to work with composition, lighting, night photography (Montréal's the perfect city) and photojournalism. You'll play around with special effects, textures and lines; learn about the psychology of colour and the way people respond to it emotionally. And that's a vital aspect of photography: eliciting emotion from the viewer. Since we're on the topic, how are you feeling right now? Ready to focus on something new?
