Our Photography Emphasis is a full digital program. We no longer offer traditional darkroom or film photography and have added more specialized classes to prepare our students to operate in this all-digital environment.
In this emphasis, students will demonstrate knowledge of DSLR camera operations, exposure, exposure controls, lenses, depth of field, shutter speeds, existing lighting, and basic lighting techniques using studio lighting and electronic flash. They will also demonstrate the skills used in publication photography, catalog and advertising photography, portraits and will photograph subjects both in the studio and on location.
Their skills will include special lighting, compositional techniques, posing techniques, and publication requirements used in photographing news events and photo essays both in the studio and on location. Student's training will also include Adobe Photoshop software on the Macintosh computer.
