CPH 2100. Media Lab I. 3 Credits.
Required of Fine Art Photography and Photojournalism majors and elective for other BFA and BA students. This course extends the traditional use and control of photographic materials into the digital realm, exploring the scanning of negatives, the use of the digital darkroom for editing and tonal control, and the comparison of different output devices and materials available to the photographer. Discussions also include the integration of digital tools with traditional approaches to photography as well as non-traditional approaches, such as multimedia and animation. Issues dealing with presentation and the choice of archival inks and papers are covered. The goal is to familiarize students with the digital tools and materials, so as to allow freedom of personal expression and an awareness of the integration of technique, medium, and content. Formerly titled "Digital Photography for PH/PJ". Prerequisite: CPH 1000 Technique and Practice, or permission of instructor.
