Digital Imaging & Design

The art of digital imaging through the use of Adobe Photoshop is explored in this course. Students create images with 35mm Digital SLR cameras that they may borrow from the school. In the first mod, each student designs and publishes a hard-cover book based on their summer project. In the second mod, students learn to edit and manipulate their images in Adobe Photoshop by participating in hands-on demonstrations and completing technical exercises. In the third mod, which is optional, students develop a cohesive portfolio. Participation in class critiques–during which, images created by students are analyzed for aesthetic, conceptual, and theoretical concerns–is required. Paper and ink are provided for a fee of $75 per mod. Student work is entered in regional and international photography contests and exhibited throughout the year in the George School galleries.
