PHOTOGRAPHY 20

Prerequisite:
Basic knowledge of computer use.

 

 

Instructor - Mr. M Roberts

Description: This introductory course in digital photography will look at the basic camera controls and how to take pictures that create interest. You will require photo editing software that allows you to save and edit in layers. Examples of this type of software are Photoshop, which you would have to purchase, or GIMP, which is a freeware program. The theme of the course is how to make the usual unusual and to create a "wow" factor within photographs. Our goal is to move from taking amateur looking snap shots to more professional looking compositions. Students will share and comment on each other's photographs weekly, supported by composition lessons and discussions. Students will also build a portfolio which will comprise a significant portion of the course work and final evaluation.

Hardware/Software Requirements:
Gimp - latest version (free download - Macintosh or PC versions available)
OR access to Photoshop (CSIII or higher) or Photoshop Elements (version 8 or higher). Some schools may have this software installed in their computer labs or the library. The computer must be available for student use on a daily, regular basis for this class. IF your school does NOT have this software, or the computer is not available on a daily basis then you should plan on downloading and using GIMP on your home computer to complete the course.

One of the following computer Systems:
    Windows based PC - 2000, XP, Vista or 7
    Mac OS X - Tiger, Leopard or Snow Leopard

A digital Camera:

  • A digital single lens reflex camera (DSLR) is greatly preferred
  • "Point and Shoot" camera can be used for some assignments but advanced camera use will be at a disadvantage because there are not manual controls for aperture and shutter speed settings.
  • The ability for manual settings is preferred but "Point and Shoot" cameras can be used if access to DSLR cameras are available for short periods of time

Memory:

  • 2 GB of RAM, 4 gigabytes (Gb) of available hard drive space is required for installation of the program and 500 Mb of available space required on system drive assignments
  • CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive for archiving photographs
  • Super VGA (1024 x 768) or higher resolution display with millions of colours
  • Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device and keyboard
  • A USB Memory storage device is advisable for moving files between home and school if applicable.
