The Photographer TCC will cover a wide range of photographic skills, including an introduction to photography, photography for commercial use and documentary journalism, as well as beginning and advanced raster imaging. Additionally, the program provides opportunities to upgrade present knowledge or skills. Photographers produce and preserve images that paint a picture, tell a story, or record an event. To create commercial-quality photographs, photographers need technical expertise, creativity, and the appropriate professional equipment. Producing a successful picture requires choosing and presenting a subject to achieve a particular effect, and selecting the right cameras and other photographic enhancing tools. For example, photographers may enhance the subject\\\'s appearance with natural or artificial light, shoot the subject from an interesting angle, draw attention to a particular aspect of the subject by blurring the background, or use various lenses to produce desired levels of detail at various distances from the subject.
