This course is offered to students who are interested in learning about the basics of quality artwork using digital photography as a medium, as well as creating images that have visual impact. Students will learn the elements and principles of design with an emphasis on composition. Throughout the course, we will also cover the basics of digital photography including vocabulary and camera/computer function. Students will be introduced to the history of photography, descriptive analysis of student/professional work, student presentations, class critiques, and the work of influential photographers. Students will learn to develop and expand their aesthetic perception. They will use Photoshop to learn basic digital imaging while also learning to enhance some of their photographic work. The students will create photographic images that will be suitable for working toward an AP studio art 2-D portfolio.
