BOCA RATON , FL. (September 14, 2007) – Florida Atlantic University will offer a professional training program, “Introduction to Digital Photography,” beginning Wednesday, September 19 at FAU’s Boca Raton campus, 777 Glades Road. A session will follow each week for eight weeks on Wednesdays from 6:45 to 9:15 p.m.
The course is taught by FAU adjunct faculty member Jim Wilson, and offers both entry and intermediate level classes. It is designed to improve the technical skills of still-image users, with an emphasis to “digitally enhance” students’ existing film-based skills toward modern, high quality digital processes, equipment, methods and techniques. Current technology will be demonstrated, but only basic computer skills utilizing Windows-based operating system are required. No academic class prerequisites are necessary.
Wilson is known in South Florida for his proficiency in digital imaging, and has more than 25 years of professional imaging experience, including coverage of several presidential inaugurations, engagements at the United States Congress and the United States Supreme Court. In addition, he has been actively recording events with digital equipment for the NCAA and many FAU athletic and campus events.
