Digital Photography

Learn how to communicate through graphics and digital photography. In this class, you will “focus” on the basics of camera operation, exposure, image control, picture composition, photo enhancement, and photo manipulation. This course discusses digital and traditional film photography, design, graphic arts, and electronic communication through discussions and mock-ups. You will complete photography projects which demonstrate techniques such as portraiture, composition, landscapes, architecture, wildlife, and nature. It is STRONGLY recommended that you use a digital camera for this course to complete all required assignments. If you choose to use a cell phone for this course, you will also need to access a photo editing application that permits users to apply settings that can generally be applied within menus typical of DSLR cameras. Note: This course does not focus on how to use specific photo editing software, but rather on the characteristics of various forms of photographic art and techniques used to achieve such artwork. Therefore, students should be prepared to use their camera and software editing tools or plan to learn and experiment with their use on their own while completing course activities.
