In this art class you'll create images using digital photography. We'll cover the basics of camera use, image editing, and formal and conceptual concerns, through readings, quizzes, exercises and 5 assignments designed to challenge you to creatively express your ideas while learning techniques.  You will also be required to visit a photography exhibit, then write a short response. An SLR digital camera, with "manual" setting option, is very strongly recommended. Point and shoot cameras may reduce your creative potential in the 5 photography assignments, though it need not affect your grade.  Printing will be discussed, but not required.
