This course will introduce students to what photography is, types of photography, and the basic components and techniques of handling a digital camera. Students will be given opportunities to express their unique creative flare, with the goal of each student coming away with a better understanding of his or her own photographic interest: portraiture, commercial, photojournalism, conceptual, fashion, sports, or wildlife.
Emphasis will be on achieving proper exposure in a variety of lighting conditions. Students will learn the art of composition, color versus black and white, and tricks for post-processing images. This course takes a hands-on approach, as students will have opportunities to go outside during the class period and learn through experimentation and showcasing their best work in class. Included discussions will be on the topics of photography ethics, how to maintain a biblical worldview as a photographer, how to see ourselves through God’s lens and not that of the media, and how we can use photography to put God’s glory on display.
