This short non-credit course is designed for digital camera newcomers who want to develop photographic skills, enhance pictures on the computer, and make digital prints. The curriculum introduces students to concepts in digital imaging and features of the digital camera.

Students will learn about and practice shooting in aperture and shutter priority modes under different lighting conditions. Composition, depth of field, motion, raw file format, storage issues and color management concepts will be discussed. Basic methods of image enhancement using Adobe Photoshop are demonstrated and applied in preparing pictures for printing. Assignments will be reviewed on technical and aesthetic criteria.
