Take this class: ARTPH 305 – Digital Photography


Staff Writer

In a campus full of exams, research papers and other such gratuitous assignments that don’t cater to your artistic side, you may want to give Art Photography 305 a try. It is not an easy A, but it is a chance to flex your creative muscles.

The Digital Photography class offer students the knowledge of how to use their cameras efficiently, in order to be able to use them on manual settings as opposed to just shooting on automatic. Students will learn how to use Photoshop to edit or even manipulate photos, as well as learn about a wide range of prominent photographers and their work from history to even present day. One such photographer students may learn about is Jerry Uelsmann, whom Professor Brandy Worsfold once studied under. The class offers Photoshop version CS6 with plugins that allow photographers to add different filter effects, functions for black-and-white images that enhance the richness and many tools that professional use. The class even offers cameras (mostly Canon brand) for students to check out for up to 24 hours.

You can check out student’s work from the class and other information at photographyarc.org.

The Student – Jessica Pratt: These classes are much more fun than traditional classes because you got to work on visual images instead of a paper. You don’t have to write a paper for this class.
The Professor – Brandy Worsfold:  Digital Photography is the coolest thing since sliced bread and that’s my word.
