Short Description:

The course deals with digital photography. Basic functions of digital image (digital sensor, exposure techniques, digital editing) are introduced both from a theoretical  as well as a technical point of view through digital editing assignments (color balance, retouche, perspective correction, scanned image, HDR image). The course deals as well with photography's general visual handling by means of elaboration of a personal project (color image) throughout the semester. Presentations and group critiques with regard to the latter are brought out, together with the presentation of important photographers' color work. The students are also asked to organize their own work in form of a portfolio
