DMA 425: Still Image Workshop

This course develops and expands the digital imaging skills introduced in the introductory class (DC 225), with a specific focus on their application in contemporary photographic practice. Advanced color correction, retouching, and compositing techniques are covered and complemented by further development of digital capture (scanning and digital cameras) and printing techniques. Assignments incorporate the technical aspects of specific skills while emphasizing their conceptual application. Digital acquisition and output utilizes ever-changing technology providing an understanding of advanced digital workflow and new processes as they apply to individual artistic practice. Students gain a wealth of technical understanding on topics such as color calibration and device profiling, file types and file management, and advanced color correction terms and techniques (gamma, color space, raster image processing and profile printing). Output methodologies and materials, including dye-based and pigment-based color inkjet prints, carbon-based black and white inkjet prints, digital color coupler printing, and a variety of experimental materials are explored. Assignments facilitate students' research and exploration of new techniques in the conception and production of their own work. PREREQUISITE(S): None
