ART 106 - Introduction to Photojournalism

This introductory-level photography course emphasizes photojournalism and digital workflow. Students explore the full potential of the digital camera and master a variety of techniques in Adobe Photoshop. Photojournalistic skills, such as people pictures and action photography, writing effective captions, writing copy, editing, and layout are covered, along with historical and contemporary approaches to photojournalism. While students are encouraged to use their personal digital still camera (provided that it has an adjustable aperture and shutter speeds), a limited number of cameras will be available for class use. Prerequisites: Prior completion of, or concurrent enrollment in, ENGL 100 if required by placement. 3 Cr. (2 Lec., 2 Lab.) Occasionally.
