In this course, students will participate in technical workshops focusing on photographic techniques and image manipulations. They will concentrate on developing skills for use in photography. Common photographic themes and subjects asked of graphic designers include interiors, portraits and small objects. Both artificial and natural lighting techniques will be explored. Using industry standard Adobe tools, students will learn how to organise, catalogue photoshoots, take advantage of a RAW workflow for editing and correcting multiple images. Finally, students will apply more advanced Adobe Photoshop techniques, images will be edited by improving exposure, painting colour and light with masks, converting to black and white and using creative filters.
