Photography I: Digital is an introduction to the creative and technical processes of photography through digital media. The course is designed to provide students with a basic understanding of photography through exercises and creative assignments using a Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera. Students gain a basic understanding of digital media, a thorough knowledge of camera operation and photographic processes, while also engaging concepts of composition, style and medium.
This course is designed for those who have little or no previous experience in photography and there is no prerequisite. In addition to weekly shooting assignments, class sessions include critiques, lecture, in class hands-on exercises, and the review of weekly shooting assignments. Critiques are an important aspect of photographic education and class critiques are intended to acquaint students with the language of photography and the basic critical skills for conceptualizing, creating, viewing and discussing photographic images.
