Digital Photography 1:

Techniques in Photography

This course is an introduction to digital photography capture, processing, and basic editing software. It is geared toward informing students in the many ways we can make photographs; by seeking them out, framing them, forming them, extracting them, building them, and finally sequencing and presenting them. The course will assist students in producing a conceptually devised and technically consistent portfolio. 

Digital Photography 2:

Schools & Methodologies

An intermediate studio course using digital cameras and image manipulation software.

This course will enhance and expand skills developed in Digital Photography 1. Students will continue to engage in the theory and practice of photography. This course is intended as an opportunity for students to refine digital photographic techniques while further exploring the ways in which those techniques can be used to produce conceptually devised and technically consistent portfolios.

Narrative Strategies

What does it mean to tell a story in still images? In this class, we will explore that question and raise others through making narrative photographs and discussing the role of storytelling within the context of photographic history. We will examine different types of photographic narratives, including: the document, archive, allegory and tableau, as well as personal mythology. 

This course is an introduction to silver-based darkroom photography.

While emphasis is placed on the fundamentals of black and white analogue photography and printing techniques, this course will also introduce students to the theory and practice of photography; assisting students in the production of a conceptually devised and technically consistent portfolio.

This course covers the history, process, and presentation of Cyanotype, Gum-Bichromate, and other Alternative Photographic Processes.  Working in the digital lab and traditional darkroom as well as a laboratory set up for alternative process printing, this course is designed for students with an intermediate knowledge of camera functions, silver gelatin, and digital techniques.


This course explores the art of video imaging and introduces students to basic principles and practices of digital video production and contemporary video practices. In this course we cover each phase from "concept to final output" including: story or concept; lighting; finding, recording and capturing footage; importing and managing clips; editing methods; transitions; effects; titles and credits; sound; and output to various formats. Time will be given to developing a ‘photographic eye’ with regards to image capture, as well as the notion of time in relation to the photographic images, however, our primary concentration is on creating, presenting, and analyzing moving images.
