      Enhance Your Digital Workflow Skills

      The advent of digital photography has changed the photography industry forever. It has also changed the skillsets needed to become a part of the industry as a retoucher or perhaps a photographer’s assistant. For these types of industry professionals, it is critical to have in-depth knowledge of the technical process of digital photography from exposure to final presentation.

      If you are considering entering the field of photography, enhancing your skills or changing careers, then the Certificate in Digital Workflow from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh - Online Division might be the perfect way to get started.

      This highly focused certificate program teaches industry-standard skills in digital imaging and processing. In application, this program is designed to provide sufficient information for a student to consider starting a one-person retouching or printing business, or to pursue a position as an assistant to an established professional photographer.

      The program builds from basic exposure, composition, and camera operations to photographic design, digital processing, color management, printing, and applied business practices. Two portfolio courses ensure that the student has opportunity to create a competitive presentation of their photographic work.

      Career Portrait

      According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), “Employment of photographers is projected to grow by 13 percent from 2010 to 2020, about as fast as the average for all occupations. […]Employment of self-employed photographers is expected to grow by 15 percent from 2010 to 2020. Demand for wedding and portrait photographers will continue as people continue to get married and need new portraits. In addition, corporations will continue to require the services of commercial photographers to develop compelling advertisements to sell products.”

      The BLS adds, “Job prospects will be best for candidates who are multitalented and possess related skills such as picture editing and capturing digital video.”
