This class is an introduction to the understanding of photography as technology, medium of expression, and creative practice. It covers basic concepts and techniques: camera operation, exposure, composition, resolution, and preparation of image files for on-screen and print use. Students will look closely at historically significant photographs as a way to deconstruct visual composition and experience the pleasure of good pictures. Assignments will include both technical and creative exercises.
