The things that i learned in the course were :
- The different kinds of phototypes of images
- How pictures speak to the viewer by using light, color, layering and etc.
- How emotion is played in photos
- The way people are placed in pictures , tells the story in the photo
- How some pictures are meant for viewers to draw emotion from it.
These things really helped me in the way I will look at photos in the future. I never really thought about how pictures were playing upon the viewers. I always just admired the photo and never looked deep into thought with the photo.
The thing that I really want to know more about is more ways layering is used in photos. This element really stuck in my head as I took the course. I feel that if I can find out more information on layering of photos, this might be something that I would be interesting in trying myself. I have always been interested in photography, but when I enrolled in college, that urge quickly left me. My Family always told me that photography does not benefit people well money wise, unless you are really good. If I knew what i knew know i would have majored in Photography as well as Public Relations. I feel that if I know more about the elements in photos, I will get that urge again to try to pursue photography.
I was surprised at a couple of things that came across my mind while taking the course. The main thing that surprised me the most was how bad I did on the ending quiz. I paid really close to details while taking the course and in the end, did not do well. I was also surprised at all of the courses that they had listed . I am looking forward to going back on the website and taking more of the courses.. You guys should do the same!!..
