This course will introduce students to photographic practice through digital means. Building from students' existing photographic skills and vocabulary, we will explore image-making with digital cameras and work with post-production image editing and manipulation (photo-montage, digital collage) using Adobe Bridge, Lightroom, and Photoshop.  Through a series of photographic projects, students will work towards developing a digital portfolio of photo-based artwork.

 

To successfully participate in this program, students will need access to reliable internet, a computer capable of running Adobe programs, a smartphone with the ability to download free apps and a DSLR camera. DSLR cameras will be available to rent via Media Loan but students must be able to come to campus for equipment pick-up if equipment rental is needed.

Students can expect our remote teaching to be around 1-2 hours of remote meeting per week and 4-6 hours of asynchronous coursework/independent work time per week, using Canvas and Zoom. Students will have access to alternatives to synchronous participation if conditions require.
