Course Description: 

This class offers an in-depth technical and conceptual foundation in digital imagery and the opportunity to explore the creative, expressive possibilities of photography.  Students will become proficient with the basic use of the camera, techniques of digital capture, color management and color correction.  They will also develop competency in scanning, retouching, printing and a variety of manipulation techniques in Photoshop.  Through weekly lectures and critiques, students will become familiar with some of the most critical issues of representation, consider examples from photo history, analyze the impact of new technologies and social media.  With an emphasis on structured shooting assignments, students are encouraged to experiment, expand their visual vocabulary while refining their technical skills.  No previous experience is necessary.  Although it is beneficial for students to have their own Digital SLR camera, registered students may reserve and checkout Digital SLR cameras and other high-end equipment from the department.  If you need assistance registering for a closed section, please email the department at fnarug@design.upenn.edu.  Note: course is open to undergraduate students only.
