This course is designed to teach the fundamental skills and basic techniques of shooting color and black and white images with digital cameras. Special emphasis will be placed on aesthetic and visual concerns as well as presentation and craftsmanship. The course focuses on understanding and operation of the camera, manual exposure, composition, history of photography, and image correction through Adobe Photoshop. Advanced students who already have a strong foundation in basic digital photography will be introduced to advanced techniques of photo editing through Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom software. By the end of the course, students will have developed an understanding of their own photographic language and have acquired a more critical eye.
All students must have a digital camera that can function in manual mode.
