For those who wish to begin their photographic education in the digital realm, this course will embrace digital technology for its potential to push photography's aesthetic and conceptual boundaries. Fundamental photographic theory and the basics of digital equipment will be covered, including a practical introduction to Adobe Photoshop and digital printing. In addition to camera basics such as composition, exposure, aperture and shutter speed, students will learn about RAW image files and how to exploit their possibilities using Photoshop. Though we will leave the physical dark room behind, this course will engage photography in much the same way as film, emphasizing an understanding of light and the concept of "seeing photographically." Through our studies, students will begin to master photographic ideas and digital tools in order to make deliberate and innovative creative choices. Lab time will be used for demonstrations and one- on-one instruction.
