Digital Photography Students Complete Training

Students in the Digital Photography Certificate program at Stanly Community College (SCC) recently completed their training. A graduation ceremony was held on August 23 in the Dennis Auditorium of the Kelley Building. Refreshments were served during a reception in the Webb Student Center that followed the graduation ceremony. Students displayed their favorite photos and presented their photographic stories to friends and family as part of the graduation ceremony.

The Digital Photography Certificate program is designed to deliver students with knowledge and skills necessary to work either independently or assisting professionals in various areas of photography. Students received training in the photographic techniques specific to portraiture and visual storytelling and portfolio design. Coursework included in-depth study of location techniques, lighting, digital imaging, retouching, and layout design. Additional topics included the study of sports, features and photo stories.
