ADPV 317 - Foundation of Digital Photo and Lighting

Credits: 3
Students learn how photography is created through both the science and art of the practice. The fundamentals of how a 35mm camera work are studied and students learn to use the manual settings to create images through various exposure and settings. The class is taught in the Lighting Studio and students learn how to use light modifiers and various light sources (strobe, hot lights, led) to create works of art. The skill of classical portraiture lighting and basic styling (hair, makeup, and costume design) for a narrative series is explored. Abstract image making with light is also part of the course as students explore how to light still and moving objects. Students graduate with a portfolio of skills that will allow to work in a professional photography studio. A survey of contemporary and historic study photographers are explored.
