    Digital Photography is a yearlong introduction to the digital SLR camera and the image editing software Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. This course covers basic concepts and practice of digital photography, including understanding and use of the camera, lenses, and other basic photographic equipment. The course will address aesthetic principles as they relate to composition, exposure, light, and color.  Focus is on developing artistic and technical skills to enhance visual literacy and applications based on professional practice. Project-based assignments integrate history and current events.  Students will be expected to demonstrate an ability to use the tools competently in the production of their artwork and portfolios. Students will create their own blog site for their assignments and photography as a platform to share their work with the teacher and other students.

Students will produce their own website to display their work and prepare a portfolio of work to post and exhibit.
