Students are introduced to the creative and technical possibilities of digital photography while exploring photographic history and current practices. They learn how to use a digital (DSLR or mirrorless) camera to create photographs using raw file formats. Topics covered include camera operations (aperture, shutter speed, ISO, focal length, focus modes) as well as lighting, framing, and advanced techniques including focus stacking and tethered shooting. Assignments target the weekly lesson and aim to push students’ creativity by applying the tools learned. Our goal is to discover new ways of looking at the world by heightening our awareness to the subtleties of light color, form, and the communication of concepts in a photograph, while developing and honing digital shooting skills and deepening students’ understanding of their equipment.
