Digital Photography provides a thorough introduction to photography in color and black and white. It begins with the basics and concludes with a deeper consideration of photography as a form of art, looking at the context and meaning of images. The curriculum explores digital editing/processing possibilities using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.

Successful completion of this course equips students to enroll in IB Visual Arts or AP 2-D Art and Design.
