Digital Media is here to stay. Intro to Photography delves into the contemporary aspects of learning and using a digital SLR camera. Students will navigate through learning how to use their DSLRs (manual, automatic, aperture, and shutter priorities), exposure settings, composition, lighting techniques, basic photography and art theory, color theory to optimize image design, photographing in RAW vs JPEG, and mise en scene (as it relates to still photography). Students will work through a series of projects that develop their technique and eye behind the camera. We will work towards creating a tangible portfolio as well as digital portfolios that we hope to showcase at the end of the year.
