Subject Description

Photography Essentials 1 introduces the initial process of image capture using digital photographic cameras and related equipment.


This subject concentrates on the functions and use of DSLR cameras. Students are encouraged to learn through demonstration and practical application. The subject also introduces students to digital photography workflow, from file processing,
to the final production of a photographic image (for both screen and print).


A major aim is to focus on industry standards for digital asset management and colour management, as well as introducing digital editing techniques used by professional photographers for processing images in a non-destructive manner. Visual research and concept development will be introduced as an essential aspect of professional practice and a fundamental tool to further enrich understanding of photography.
