Digital Photography I (05167G10D1)
Year-long / 1 credit
Prerequisite: Teacher Recommended Art I
Fee Required & Digital Camera Required
This is a beginning level introductory course for students who are genuinely interested in and passionate about photography to the technical and artistic aspects of digital photography. Students will be challenged through project-based assignments that will require some outside of class work. Students will in addition learn about the history of photography and photographers. They will learn to create aesthetically strong photographs and how photography communicates ideas and allows for self-expression. We will work frequently in a computer lab in Adobe Photoshop, and will briefly touch on InDesign and Illustrator as well. A digital camera is required to take the class, but no prior experience is required.
