This course is designed to serve as a breeding ground for advanced digital photography problem-solving. We will capitalize on the skills obtained in Basic Digital Photography as a springboard for a more detailed investigation into the complete digital workflow of a photograph from its conceptualization to the final presentation of an image within a contemporary art context. Students will use Adobe Photoshop CS3, Epson high-resolution scanners and printers, as well as other specialized proprietary software from Canon and Gretag Macbeth to explore holistic color management, negative scanning, mural printing, custom ICC profiles, and the implications of specific media on effective presentation. In addition to a high level of technical competence, students will be required to participate in rigorous discussions about large issues currently winding through photography concerning the expanding role that digital photography occupies within contemporary art. I stress the idea of conceptual/contemporary art because of the extraordinarily large amount of photographic genres and approaches. This class is only interested in encouraging the production of images that have a strong conceptual backbone and are committed to existing in a fine art ideological context. Immersing students in an arena where they are confronted with both complex ideas and detailed technical challenges are the objectives of this course. Lab Fee: $50.
