3 hours 

This course is an introduction to digital photography as an art medium and form of communication. Topics include basic DSLR camera operation and use of imaging software, and an introduction to concepts from the history and theory of photography, including the development of the medium from its inception to current day (i.e. from the daguerreotype to digital). Students are encouraged to create artwork that responds to research and to philosophical inquiry, and which articulates original ideas, keeping in mind the complex ethical issues associated with representation.
