Photography is much more than a hobby, something you do to fill scrapbooks, or a way to capture sunsets. Photography can be used to tell stories. Pictures encapsulate moments in time, document change, challenge beliefs, and inspire action by stirring emotions people may not realize they have. Photography epitomizes the youthful human spirit – free-willed and forward-looking yet nostalgic, distinctly poignant, and expressive of an unspoken yearning for something that is or once was.

Like any form of art, photography often requires training and practice to perfect it. That’s why Liberty University offers a 100% online Bachelor of Science in Digital Design – Photographic Design: to help you learn how to harness this power.
