Introduction to Digital Photography

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

This lecture/demonstration course introduces you to the fundamentals of digital photography. You emerge from the class with a new sense of the power of photography and confidence in using a camera without focusing excessively on the technical details of the medium. Topics covered include different types of cameras, how to choose a camera, and how to hold the camera to ensure sharp photographs. You also learn about aperture opening (f-stop) and shutter speed in detail so that you can control how the two elements work together to determine exposure, sharpness, and depth of field. You also explore lighting techniques, image size and perspective as related to lens and focal length choice, depth-of-field and its creative potential, automatic features of electronic cameras, digital darkroom techniques, and accessories including tripods, flashes, and filters. Your individual creativity is stressed and your work is viewed and discussed in class. If you own a camera, bring it to the first class session. Limited to 16. Open to Non-Credit and Certificate Students. Open to Degree students with permission of program
