What You'll Get
This course is for students with previous experience using a digital SLR camera and who are interested in pursuing a more conceptual engagement with photography. A brief review of basic camera techniques starts the term, followed by a focus on the possibilities of communication using photo-based images. Supplemented by trips to the Art Institute of Chicago, the course includes critical discussion of concepts regarding art making, student work, and the work of contemporary and historical artists.
The course also includes lessons in Adobe Bridge, Photoshop, and InDesign, the process of high quality digital printing on Canon roll printers and high resolution laser printers, as well as the elements of photographic lighting. Toward the end of the term, each student follows their own photographic vision in the form of a themed project to be presented on the last day of class. The goal of this course is to challenge students to articulate their ideas using the photographic medium, as well as to understand and describe the creative steps of their process. Each student can expect to develop a series of work that exists in the form of high quality prints and/or a small book.
This course is designed for students with previous digital photography experience, including manual camera use and basic Photoshop editing skills. Students must provide their own digital SLR camera that has manual control options (no point-and-shoot cameras).
