Intermediate Photography: Composite and Time


This course introduces students to the use of several techniques and methodologies that combine multiple images into a single composite photograph. Students develop skills to pre-visualize and plan the work they envision through high definition range capture, panoramic stitching, and focus stacking. They explore the nature and concept of Time in photographic imagery through various techniques, such as creating more than one timescale into an image, `recreating┬┐ one time in another, building the representation of time into a work, and visualizing passing time in the process of making work. This is an intermediate course in photography, with an ongoing emphasis on operating manual camera settings (focus, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, color temp/ white balance). Students continue to work with Lightroom as a file management system, are introduced to Photoshop, and focus on the importance of photo editing/selection and sequencing. Prerequisite: ARTSTUDI 170 or ARTSTUDI 171 or ARTSTUDI 173E or equivalent.
