Photography III
3 Credit Hours

Students will continue to master photography skills developed in Photography II. Technical proficiency with camera functions and composition will be increased as students also develop advanced posing and studio lighting techniques. Students will utilize a broad range of creative photographic techniques involving digital, traditional, and artistic methods. Emphasis is on the understanding, control, and manipulation of lighting and lighting equipment using both additive and subtractive lighting techniques. Students will increase their lighting repertoire by using mixed light, location lighting, and painting with light. This course will also cover the definitions and characteristics of fine art photography. Various fine art photographers are examined with an emphasis in the visual tools they use to create fine art work. Via self- and class critiques, students will evaluate their own work and that of their peers. Participation in the student photography show is required.
