This course introduces beginners to the creative and technical possibilities of digital photography. Through demonstrations and hands-on sessions, students learn the basics of using cameras and imaging software to produce digital photographs. Topics include camera operation, shutter speed, aperture, focal length, RAW file formats, white balance, and composition. Using Adobe Lightroom, students learn file management and image enhancement. Lectures on historical and contemporary artwork explore creative approaches to photography, and assignments build photographic skill sets.
prerequisite: Computer literacy
note: A digital SLR or mirrorless camera capable of shooting RAW files is required.
For the first class, you need to have the digital SLR camera you will be using for the entire course, the camera manual and a set of head phones which you will need for every class session.
For ICP online classes we use two systems:
-Webex: where each live class session happens.
-ICP Class Website: where you will view assignments, upload work, view course materials, ask questions on a Bulletin Board and view bios of the instructor, TA and other students.
A few days before the class begins, you will receive an email from the Education Office with your log in information to access the class website and Webex. It is important that you log in before the first class session to familiarize yourself with the website and make sure your Webex account works properly. Please look over the Course Materials section before the first class too.
