Dive into the world of digital photography through exercises, tutorials and professional practices. Learn to compose and produce images while learning advanced Adobe Photoshop features like selections, layers and masks. Group discussions on contemporary photography offer insight—and room for debate—on photographers, their artistic practice, strategies, and concepts. By the end of the course, you will have produced a cohesive body of photographs for your own personal artistic growth, as well as a portfolio to be used for applying to college, or other art related programs.
Requirements: Students must provide their own digital SLR camera with manual camera operations, and have access to a computer with photoshop.
