Digital Camera II – FALL
The course builds upon the foundation built in the Digital Camera I workshop. Reviewing the basics and then moving on to more fundamentals, students will continue to develop their photography skills as they become more comfortable with the functions of their digital cameras. In addition to learning new technical skills – including additional camera functions and an introduction to the use of flash – this course will address the visual elements of making images, helping students elevate their skills from taking snapshots to making photographs. Discussions include: identifying and isolating the subject, elements of composition, and effective use of color in your photographs. Weekly critique sessions address technical and aesthetic considerations as students are challenged to make conscious decisions as they use their cameras. Interactive classroom sessions as well as shooting and imaging assignments will provide a deeper understanding of the tools and techniques available to them within digital photography.
