Digital Photography Bootcamp
DWC’s Digital Photography Bootcamp for essential skills from a pro
With your digital camera, the options are limitless. However, creating quality photos is not always as easy as it looks. In our digital photography bootcamp, you will learn how to get the most from your camera in a hands-on, live class. Working with instructors like Josh Hardin, photo editor for Colorado Life Magazine, you will find out how to get the results you want from your camera.
In the digital photography bootcamp, you will start working with your instructor from the basics of your camera in DSLR for Beginners (Level 1) and then move on to the trickier settings in DSLR Intermediate (Level 2). From there you will learn about outdoor photography in a full day workshop, followed by an Adobe Lightroom class to help you with post-processing and editing.
While a photography student at DWC, we want to mentor you in and outside of the classroom. Every class at DWC is a small class size and includes hands-on, live training. Your instructors will serve as a mentor throughout the entire bootcamp term.
You may also customize your program to suit your needs. Custom training options are available based on your goals and you can schedule a time to speak to a student advisor to learn more about custom options such as Portrait Photography, Adobe Photoshop, Capstone Projects and more.
Payment plans are available on 6 or 12 month terms.
