FROM TRADITIONAL TO DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY
8 Sessions >> Wednesdays, February 1-March 22
7:30-10:30 pm, Studio 20A, $350
Prerequisite: For intermediate to advanced photographers.
This class will teach students how to control the fine art of photographic film transferred to the digital print. It will be a technology heavy course focused primarily on learning film scanning, Photoshop, and digital printing. Students will gain the ability to feel confident in this process and end with a formal series of digital prints. Students should come to class with black and white or color negatives from previous photo shoots. Content and type of film is up to the student. We will learn digital scanning, editing, and printing, while thinking through concept, composition, and the value of this form of photographic work.
