This subject gives a brief overview of the basic principles of photography, but the primary focus is on students developing their skills to edit, manipulate and enhance digital imagery. Students undertake a series of exercises that hone their Photoshop skills, resulting in an understanding of the ways in which the digital representation of images can be altered and potential ethical implications of digital manipulation. Students are required to explore their skills through a concept-driven project, culminating in a series of images incorporating and expanding on the competencies developed throughout the weekly exercises. Students are strongly encouraged to take their own images and to think critically about the role of the image within the scope of the visual communication industry.
Spring session, City campus
