Digital Photography I

In this course, students complete a series of projects that strengthen their skills and technical understanding while pushing them to explore and experiment. Students learn the basic controls and settings of their DSLR cameras and experiment with Adobe Photoshop as they refine their images. Students are introduced to studio and flash lighting, and begin to use a journal to study and record observations from the work of master photographers. Students are required to have their own DSLR camera, card reader and tripod. Foundations in Digital Art is a prerequisite for this course. (Semester, .50 credit)
