Digital Imaging 1


In Digital Imaging, students begin by learning the basic functions of digital cameras and general photographic concepts such as composition, subject, exposure, lighting and flash. Students then learn how to use GIMP, an image-processing program to create and manipulate digital images. Specific skills taught in this course include using layers, cropping images, color and lighting concepts such as hue and saturation. As a culminating activity, students build a portfolio of work to demonstrate the skills they have learned. Students do not need to have access to a digital camera or photography experience to take this course.

Learning Targets:

  1. Students will be able to explain how a digital camera works, and the differences between color and black and white images.
  2. Students will be able to demonstrate good photographic composition and lighting in their images.
  3. Students will be able to use the selection, drawing, and transformation tools of GIMP on their own and existing images.
  4. Students will be able to use multiple layers to modify existing images and create their own multi-layered images.
