ART 377 - The Constructed Photograph

(3 S.H.)

This course builds on ART 277 to provide students with in-depth knowledge of how to create images with lens-based equipment and software as well as critical analysis skills of how those images function in western culture. Assignments will challenge students to create images from multiple source files that include the study of High Dynamic Range imaging, images built with digitally “collaged” content, panoramic technology and the various “filters” that now inform how photographic imagery is communicated. Through making and studying images, students will define what a photograph “is” in the expanding world of digital imagery as they question the veracity of photographically-based imagery we encounter on a daily basis. Prerequisite: ART 277 - Digital Imaging  or instructor permission. Grade or P/NC. Offered annually (usually spring semester). Note: To complete course assignments, students must have access to a digital camera with manual exposure control and ability to capture RAW files (most likely a Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR), and digital storage to back up their work. Repeatable up to 6 credits.
