This is a digital photography course for those with experience in the basics of photography technique and at least basic experience with adjustable digital cameras. You are expected to explore the photographic process as a means of personal and cultural expression – extend yourself. Requisite equipment: regular access to a camera with adjustable settings, preferably a digital SLR camera with RAW capture. A compact adjustable digital camera is acceptable, but is not the best tool for learning how to control image-making. Canon Xti SLR cameras are available through the Library; you will need your Media ID Card (available from instructor) and student ID. Bring your camera with charged battery, memory card and manual to class everyday!
