This course is designed for students who are seriously interested in learning about the Art of Photography. The way we capture and create images is continually being transformed by technology. This course will help photographers acquire the skills and creative fluency needed to achieve a personal vision in their work. Students will be introduced to traditional black and white photography and then progress to an exploration of the basic skills of digital photographic capture and editing. The students will explore photography through history, the art of photography through an understanding of design and aesthetics and explore the expressive and thematic elements of this medium. It is recommended that students have their own digital camera.
