Photography Foundation (VCDP 1121)

This is a project-based course that introduces students to both the theoretical and practical applications of digital photography for graphic designers. Students will learn how to professionally use a DSLR camera and to take advantage of basic photo principles to suit image creation for specific needs. Photo principles include the depth of field and aperture, movement and shutter speed, ISO noise and dark scenes, metering and exposure in relation to image, and image size capture for different applications. Once core concepts have been understood, students use camera RAW Adobe applications to edit photography. Photographic history will be considered with composition image techniques. Image capturing will be applied further in the course as students create original imagery for various projects.
