The course is intended for students who, in their professional or private life, wish to learn the basis of digital photography and image editing. The course introduces basic camera handling, i.e. optics and technology and how this is combined with the image linguistic possibilities of photography. You will also learn the basis of lighting, digital processing, formats etc.
Nonetheless the image linguistic aspect is always in focus and introduced parallel to the practical elements in the form of lectures and seminars concerning image quality, composition, colouring, form, image rhetoric and son on. Students need to be familiar with the use of computers and access to a personal system camera will facilitate the studies.
The course is given entirely at a distance but contains (a number of) compulsory digital meetings.
Distance – study where you are
Perhaps you would like to study in the Swedish mountains, in a big city, or at home close to family? Many of our programmes and courses are offered in distance format.
Studying at a distance can be done in different ways, either entirely without physical gatherings or with only a few gatherings on campus or at one of our learning centres. The common denominator is that a large part of your studies takes place online. You communicate with the teacher and other students with the help of a learning platform with discussion forums, group work, recorded lectures and online meetings.
The benefit of distance studies is the flexibility, something that is valuable if you want to be free to decide when and where you want to study. Some compulsory elements on you course or programme may take place during office hours, even though they are online.
