In this class, students will learn to be in control of their photographs, both by choosing the best camera settings for the intended result and by manipulating images digitally. Students will also use Adobe Photoshop to create original artwork. Later in the year, students will learn to use Adobe Illustrator to create vector artwork. The course will include an introduction to digital animation.
Take dozens of photographs! Think about the point of each picture you take. Choose what to focus on and how to frame the picture: try not to cut off anything awkwardly, and not to include things or space that don't add to the photo. Look at each photo after you shoot it, and make the next one better.
