ART 129 - Digital Photography 1

3 credits

This introductory course provides a theoretical, technical, and aesthetic foundation in digital photography. Students learn technical camera usage and principles of design through shooting assignments that focus on the correlation between photography composition and conceptual intent. Lab exercises and demonstrations develop basic digital skills using software to modify and enhance images for digital output and presentation. Theoretical readings, writing assignments, group critique and visual presentations of contemporary digital photography help contextualize the student’s work and facilitate the development of analytical skills with an emphasis given to the vocabulary of photographic viewing.

Notes: Students must supply their own digital camera with manual controls and materials. A DSLR is highly recommended.
Offered every semester.
