This course covers the basic principles of manual photography in a digital environment. You will be using a Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera to take your photographs and will learn basic editing and digital manipulation for web and digital media-based content. The student will learn about and understand exposure by manually adjusting the ISO, shutter speed and aperture. Students will consider both the technical and visual components of the photograph covering: general composition and exposure, portraits, object and product photography in critical discussions with their instructor and their peers. Students apply the concepts learned during lectures to relevant assignments that are used to build a rounded photography portfolio website.
