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 portfolio of photo-based artwork.
DSLR cameras and related equipment (tripods, lenses, etc.) will be available to rent via Media Loan.
Students should have a working knowledge of basic camera operation, with an understanding of ISO, aperture, shutter speed and metering. Additional support will be provided as necessary to assure your basic understanding of these fundamentals.
