Program Overview

This course introduces students to basic photographic theory, practice, and techniques. Students think and work visually using a variety of digital media. They use photography as a tool in self-expression, visual communication, and creativity. Students use manual controls of cameras, exposure, and available light and fill flash lighting techniques.

The Photography curriculum focuses on image capture techniques, creative and conceptual proficiency, practical skills such as lighting, colour and black-and-white output, and image post-production editing. Students also study commercial studio techniques and portraiture.
