800 Digital Photography:

In this course, students will develop the technical and creative skills needed to operate a digital camera and accessories effectively and produce high-quality photographic images for various media and purposes. Through multiple lectures, examples, study guides, guided practices, and student resources, they will gain an understanding of the principles of photographic composition, lighting, camera stabilization, and digital image management. They will also learn the principles of the exposure triangle and how to control and balance the exposure and creative effects of photographic images. Upon completion of the course, students will have developed an industry-level portfolio of digital photographic images that demonstrate their proficiency in the use of photographic equipment, techniques, and software.

 

Tasks:

801 - Operate a digital camera and accessories.

Provided with multiple lectures, examples, study guides, guided practices, and student resources, the students will demonstrate an understanding of the basic operation and functions of a digital camera and its accessories, including camera modes, settings, exposure, focus, and composition, and will be able to apply this knowledge to capture and manipulate digital images that meet the technical and aesthetic requirements of various media and purposes to an industry portfolio level.

 

802 - Compose a photograph through the lens.

Provided with multiple lectures, examples, study guides, guided practices, and student resources, the students will demonstrate an understanding of the basic principles of photographic composition, including framing, balance, symmetry, contrast, leading lines, and depth of field, and will be able to apply this knowledge to compose and capture photographic images that meet the technical and aesthetic requirements of various media and purposes to an industry portfolio level.

 

803 - Determine lighting options and their effects.

Provided with multiple lectures, examples, study guides, guided practices, and student resources, the students will demonstrate an understanding of the different lighting options available in photography and their effects on the mood, tone, and atmosphere of the photographic images, including natural light, artificial light, studio lighting, and off-camera flash, and will be able to apply this knowledge to select and control lighting that enhances the visual impact and communication of photographic images for various media and purposes to an industry portfolio level.

 

804 - Stabilize a camera.

Provided with multiple lectures, examples, study guides, guided practices, and student resources, the students will demonstrate an understanding of the different camera stabilization techniques and devices, including tripods, monopods, gimbals, and steadicams, and will be able to apply this knowledge to stabilize the camera and reduce camera shake and blur in photographic and video images for various media and purposes to an industry portfolio level.

 

805 - Download and manage digital images.

Provided with multiple lectures, examples, study guides, guided practices, and student resources, the students will demonstrate an understanding of the basic procedures and best practices for downloading, organizing, and managing digital images, including using image file formats, metadata, keywords, folders, and backup systems, and will be able to apply this knowledge to maintain and access digital image collections that are secure, efficient, and searchable for various media and purposes to an industry portfolio level.

 

806 - Identify principles of the exposure triangle.

Provided with multiple lectures, examples, study guides, guided practices, and student resources, the students will demonstrate an understanding of the principles of the exposure triangle, including aperture, shutter speed, and ISO, and how they affect the exposure, depth of field, motion blur, and noise of photographic images, and will be able to apply this knowledge to control and balance the exposure and creative effects of photographic images for various media and purposes to an industry portfolio level.

 

Standards:

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RST.11-12.1: Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of science and technical texts, attending to important distinctions the author makes and to any gaps or inconsistencies in the account.

 

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RST.11-12.2: Determine the central ideas or conclusions of a text; summarize complex concepts, processes, or information presented in a text by paraphrasing them in simpler but still accurate terms.
