Photography has seen a rapid evolution in the past few years. Cameras, printers, and software have gone through tremendous growth in the digital world, offering photographers new ways of creating, editing, and presenting their photographs. Levels of image control that would have been nearly impossible with film and darkroom techniques can now be applied with digital cameras and in the editing process of the digital files. A heightened sense of visual impact in composition and color is now within the reach of every photographer in the digital darkroom of Adobe Photoshop.

In this course you will learn how to effectively use your digital camera to create properly exposed images, download them, process them (in Adobe Photoshop), and arrive at a final product as either prints and/or electronic images. We will explore light, composition, and color, along with the fundamental controls of the digital camera. We will also cover tips and techniques for enhancing the creative expression of your images. Finally, you will produce a portfolio of images that illustrate your ability to visually express your understanding of the medium in relationship to your perception of the world you live in. For this class you will need access to a 4 megapixel (or higher) digital camera. RAW file capability and the option for manual exposure are preferred. A limited number of cameras are available for check-out through the LHSP office.
