Best Photography colleges in Maine 2021

Do you have the ability to take any old random thing and turn it into a photographic work of art? Are you the person who takes a camera everywhere you go because you're fascinated with the idea of forever capturing the human journey? If you answered "yes", or even thought a confident "maybe", a degree in photography is definitely for you. Photographers must be more than creative; they must have a thorough understanding of the subject and the equipment. As a photography student, you will learn the basics of photography: the history of photography, lighting and composition, how to capture objects in motion, equipment operation and maintenance, and the use of computer applications to enhance images. Because the technology world is constantly changing, successful photography students must learn how to adapt to the changes. What you learn while earning your degree should complement your current photography knowledge.

You can go to school to become a photography generalist or you can have a specialty such as photojournalism, digital media, or portraits. Make sure to do in-depth research to find the school that best fits your goals. Keep in mind that fine arts specialty schools are typically more competitive than liberal arts colleges and typically require a strong portfolio. Most entry-level positions in photography require a bachelor's degree, while some technical positions may only require an associate degree; teaching photography generally requires a master's degree.
