This program is now meeting fully in-person instead of hybrid. Contact the faculty with any questions.

This is an introductory course for learning and exploring the visual language of lens-based digital photographic imagery. Students will develop skills and knowledge through hands-on experience with various types of capture devices i.e. cell phones, scanners, and consumer grade digital and analog cameras. Historical and critical study, will enable students to understand, value, and appreciate the creative process within the context of the visual arts.

Students will receive an overview and hybrid of practice, history, appreciation, social and society uses, and critical inquiry. This course will instill a scholarly, visually-literate approach to the medium, its history, and its use in art making and do so through the attentive making of photographs. This course will be predominantly digital but there will be at least one analog assignment to give students the experience of shooting with film.

This course will take a hybrid approach to learning which will include virtual lectures and discussions with in-person work sessions and critiques. Students should have access to reliable internet and a computer that can run Adobe Creative Cloud applications. Students should be able to attend in-person activities but, in the event that they are unable to attend, alternatives options to achieve learning objectives will be provided.
