The Art of llumination: Lighting for Photography (Spring 2014)
Photography and Filmmaking
For photographers, light is the active medium: Every adjustment to aperture, shutter speed, or sensitivity modifies how the camera interprets light. It is this that informs, obscures, and molds the creative qualities of photographs. In this class, students will explore the principles and practices of controlling natural and artificial light.
Through lectures, demonstrations, and creative and challenging assignments, students will gain a comprehensive understanding of lighting for digital photography and will learn how to effectively use tungsten, strobe, and natural lighting in their work.
Professional portrait, product, and still-life lighting techniques will be demonstrated throughout the class. As this is a technical class, students will need a Digital Single Lens Reflex (SLR) camera that accepts interchangeable lenses. Point-and-shoot cameras will not be adequate. / This is a hands-on digital photography course. Students will not have darkroom, computer lab, or printing privileges and may not access the photography studios outside of class. / Open to students ages 18 and above.
Prerequisites: Previous photography experience. Students will be expected to own and have a proficient understanding of a Digital SLR camera and its functions.
What to Bring: Digital SLR camera; memory card; notebook; pen or pencil.
