This class is for students with a general curiosity in photography and its potential as a creative medium. To properly understand concepts of metering light and making good exposures, this course focuses on the technical aspects of completely manual digital camera functions. Students also learn the process of digital workflow and output, creating high quality prints using Adobe Bridge and Photoshop software, Canon inkjet printers, and high-resolution laser printers. Though this class focuses heavily on the understanding of photography's technical aspects, classes are supplemented with discussions regarding contemporary art concepts and issues, the work of significant photographic artists, and the ideas behind communicating thoughts through photographs. No experience is necessary for this course. Students must provide their own digital SLR (Single Lens Reflex) camera that has manual control options (no point-and-shoot cameras).
