Digital Photography (online)

Description

The Digital Photography course focuses on the basics of photography and basic camera functions, including building an understanding of aperture, shutter speed, lighting, and composition. Students will be introduced to the history of photography and learn how to critique photographs in order to better understand what creates an eye catching photograph. They will also examine various aspects of professional photography, including the ethics of the profession, and examine some of the areas in which professional photographers may choose to specialize.

Students are required to submit examples of their work and therefore must have access to a digital camera, and have the ability to upload their images. Students will use the basic techniques of composition and camera functions to build a portfolio of images and explore the fields of photography and graphic arts. In the first half of the course, students will work on capturing people, landscapes, close-up, and action photographs. In the second half, students will explore wedding photography and product photography.
This full unit online course is self-contained with no additional textbook or print materials. In Semester A (Digital Photography I) there are 10 Units. In Semester B (Digital Photography II) there are 8 Units.
There are 4 exams in Digital Photography.
