This course allows students to master the basics – creatively and technically – of digital photographic techniques and materials. The class will provide a primer for Adobe Photoshop, the appropriate hardware (scanners and printers), and digital cameras. The class will also introduce and explore color photography, its history, methods, and materials and a survey of contemporary work in the medium. Although the curriculum introduces many aspects of digital craft, assignments and projects will include the use of traditional techniques as well. Critical to the course is the continued exploration of photography as a language of visual expression within the fine arts. Students will be using digital and traditional cameras. Prerequisite AR281.
