ARTS 242 - Digital Photography (SA)
Students learn about color photography, studio lighting, digital workflow, and inkjet printing. Special attention is paid to the ideas most closely linked to the emergence of digital photography, including artificial realities, social constructs, and image as information. Students will engage in a series of thematic projects, culminating in a final project of their own design. Through critique, discussion, and writing students are asked to articulate the ideas, issues and visual qualities that animate their work, finding their place in ongoing conversations around photography and contemporary art. A limited number of cameras are available for checkout, when possible students are encouraged to provide their own digital SLR camera with manual settings ($250 or so used). Additional student cost for materials is $100-$150.
