This online course features the following types of interaction:

  • Live meetings
  • Live critiques

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 camera and computer imaging software to create photographs through raw file formats. Topics covered include camera operations (aperture, shutter speed, ISO, focal length) as well as photographic concerns such as lighting and composition. Assignments target the weekly lesson and aim to push students’ creativity by applying the tools learned. Lectures explore both historical and contemporary photography, with a focus on images that apply the technical lessons learned in class and consider new trends in the medium. Our goal is to discover new ways of looking at the world by heightening our awareness to the subtleties of light and color, the abstraction of shape and the communication of concepts behind a photograph.
