Projects in this class focused on mastering photography skills that included solely using manual mode, achieving maximum depth of field and understanding the power of lighting. The wide range of skill level among the students allowed each student to challenge themselves based on their own experience. As a design class, there was also a great focus on composition and cropping of photos. Photographs were critiqued both for their aesthetic and technical nature.
Prints were required for all photographs. Final Project and Portrait/ Self Portrait Project were mounted on black matte board.
Photo editing and test prints were a must to obtain the best prints possible.
All photos were taken with natural light using a Sony a390 DSLR. Lenses included 18-55mm kit, 30mm macro and 18-270mm telephoto.
