ART 148(C) - Introduction to Digital Fine Art Photography
Two, 2½ hour studios per week.
MassTransfer Block Code: Humanities/Fine and Performing Arts
This course is an introduction to the imaging software and production procedures used in the creation of the fine art digital photograph. Students learn the basic concepts and tools of Adobe Photoshop necessary to enhance images, rather than as a tool of manipulation, emphasizing color and tonal correction, as well as solving visual problems that would be more difficult to solve in the wet darkroom. The class will discuss using color management to ensure predictable and consistent results. A variety of printers, archival inks, and media will be compared while students work first-hand in the digital darkroom. The course is designed to meet the needs of photographers who want to use a computer to do everything they have previously done in the traditional darkroom.
Prerequisite(s): ART 140
