APH243 Digital Imaging for Art Photography (Fall, Spring)

Art Photography students explore the applications of digital and electronic photography as an art form. Using your own scanned photographs and digital camera images, you will utilize the computer to construct new art work.

Along with technical information, the course discusses the aesthetic and ethical implications in Contemporary Art Photography. We shall work on and discuss your ideas and their expressive technical solutions. Ongoing studio assignments broaden your approach and practice, with emphasis on studio lighting, printing and final presentation. Projects, lectures and in class critiques will encourage the students to think about and discuss the content of their images as well as the use of digital techniques.

This is a mixed-level class. Though projects and assignments are the same for both levels, the work will be evaluated based on the student’s prior study experience.

Students must provide their own digital camera with manual settings (better SLR cameras) and 16-32 memory cards.
