In this six-session course, a logical continuation for students who have completed both Basic Photography – Part 1 and Basic Photography – Part 2, students will continue to learn basic camera operation and photography fundamentals while practicing and refining their personal process for achieving a unique photographic vision.

The course focuses on analyzing and practicing the basic technical capture of photographs and using cameras to interpret the world around them. Assignments will guide students towards the creation of a project – a series of images with a common theme and style. During the run of the course, students will be introduced to basic features of Adobe Lightroom. The software allows viewing, organizing and retouching large numbers of digital images. In addition, students will learn the “capture to print” process by selecting a singular favorite image from their projects for printing.

The goal of the course is to have students fully understand photography fundamentals and digital camera operation, create a series of images that are thematically and stylistically unified, and to understand basic archiving and post-production principles using Adobe Lightroom.

Rollence Patugan ( is a commercial as well as a fine-art photographer who has been a recurring exhibitor for Month of Photography Los Angeles, Smashbox Studios, and City of Brea Art Gallery. He uses both digital and analog formats while taking advantage of today’s technologies by incorporating them into his photography. He is a faculty member of the Santa Monica College Photography Department and is very happy to share his creative and technical skills to students at the Los Angeles Center of Photography.
