Introduction to Digital Photography (ONLINE) IN660PH_ON


with RA Friedman

Calendar Current session started Sep 20, 2021 at 7 pm, runs for 10 weeks

 Achieve the technical knowledge and creative camera skills needed to make powerful, professional-quality photographs using a DSLR or mirrorless camera, from initial capture to final print.  Learn the functions, modes, and menus of your camera; how they affect picture-taking; and how to select the appropriate settings for a given environment.  Instruction will address shooting in RAW format, employing expressive natural and artificial light, creating setups for portraiture, photo-editing, and post-processing in Adobe Lightroom.  Develop a unified body of work ready for exhibition, publication, or a portfolio.  Demonstrations, discussions, reviews and short weekly projects are designed to get you up, out and behind the camera!  Prior photography experience is helpful, but not necessary.  A fully adjustable (pro, “prosumer”) DSLR or mirrorless camera, as well as Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop or Gimp software, required.  A weekly live Zoom session will be held every Monday, 7 – 8 p.m. 

Note: This course is available for 1.0 undergraduate credit for $525

Ability with a digital or film camera and photo workflow is a prerequisite. Some technical issues will be addressed, but the core of the class is strengthening your creative outlook and practice.  This is an asynchronous Canvas course with a weekly live Zoom session every Tuesday, 7 – 8 p.m.  (See materials list for more information)
