Introduction to Digital Fine Art Photography [C]

COURSE CODE: ART 148

CREDITS: 3

PREREQUISITES: Prerequisites: ART 140

This course is an introduction to necessary imaging software and production procedures used in the creation of the fine art digital photograph. Students learn the basic concepts and tools of Adobe Photoshop necessary to enhance images rather than as a tool of manipulation, emphasizing color and tonal correction, as well as solving visual problems that would be more difficult to solve in the wet darkroom. The class will discuss using color management to ensure predictable and consistent results. A variety of printers, archival inks and media will be compared while students work first-hand in the digital darkroom. The course is designed to meet the needs of photographers who want to use the computer to do everything they have previously done in the traditional darkroom. Two, 2 1/2 hour studios per weekPrerequisites: ART 140
