WEEK 8 - DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY BASICS: COPY STAND PHOTOGRAPHY
Week #8 was dedicated to the fundamentals of photography. The course covered essential techniques for capturing high resolution images as well as discussion on how those elements determine the final captured image. The students learned that photography is not just a “point and shoot” process. The students worked on many exercises that apply to every aspect of photography in and out of the lab. This allowed the students not only to understand the complete functionality of their own camera, but to also be creative in thought process.

The following concepts were taught, discussed, and applied in assignments, both in and out of the classroom during the week:

- Camera History
- Camera Modes
- Types of camera lenses
- Digital v Film
- Types of digital sensors

- Digital file types
