Digital Media I / Lighting
A 200-level course that introduces both technical and aesthetic foundations in photography; utilizing both digital imaging and photoshop techniques. Students are given problems regarding exposure, lighting, composition, camera controls, file management, image adjustments and digital printing. Development of each student’s personal vision is encouraged as well as knowledge of the medium’s history and current practices.
After completing this course, students will have an understanding of the following: studio lighting, an introduction to digital camera controls, digital workflow, color management, file formats, basic image adjustment, retouching, b/w conversion, adjustment layers, digital printing, scanning & basic Adobe Camera Raw, Bridge & Photoshop CS6.
I contributed to this course in the spring semester of 2012, by conducting workshops that included lecture and demonstration about studio lighting. After introducing the students to the material, I guided the students as they interacted with the lighting equipment. This course is listed as A&D 267 in Purdue University's course catalog.
