High-speed/Time-lapse Photography   (PHO-482)   3.00 s.h.  
*
*
*
*
*
*
The theory and practice of photographic systems designed to permit analysis of events of very short or of extended duration. Included are operational characteristics of time-lapse cameras, sequencing and timing control devices, time magnification relationships. Also, characteristics of intermittent and rotating prism cameras, rotating mirror and drum cameras, synchronization system and timing controls and high-speed flash and spark gap systems. Students gain experience not only in the use of the basic equipment but also in proper planning, set-up and data reduction techniques through a series of practical experiments.

Course Description
Camera technology utilized for digital photography. Photographs submitted with assignments must be made with cameras that have controls for exposure, shutter speed, and ISO; variable focal lengths either through zoom or interchangeable lenses; setting for macro (close-up) photography; and built in flash or hot shoe for external flash. Photographs made with cell phones, tablets, or video cameras in still mode, are not acceptable without prior approval of the mentor. (3.00 sh)


Note: Photographs submitted with assignments must be made with cameras that have controls for exposure, shutter speed, and ISO; variable focal lengths either through zoom or interchangeable lenses; setting for macro (close-up) photography; and built in flash or hot shoe for external flash. Photographs made with cell phones, tablets, or video cameras in still mode, are not acceptable without prior approval of the mentor.

Learning Outcomes
Through the Portfolio Assessment process, students will demonstrate that they can appropriately address the following outcomes:

  • Credit will be awarded for demonstration of competency in areas to include exposure, shutter speed, focus, depth of field, framing, composition, lighting (including flash).
  • Knowledge of appropriate ISO settings for different lighting situations; special techniques such as panning and blurred motion; night photography; basic post exposure digital adjustments such as removing red eye, correcting problems with contrast and color, and cropping.
  • Photographs submitted with assignments must be made with cameras that have controls for exposure, shutter speed, and ISO; variable focal lengths either through zoom or interchangeable lenses; setting for macro (close-up) photography; and built in flash or hot shoe for external flash.
  • Photographs made with cell phones, tablets, or video cameras in still mode, are not acceptable without prior approval of the mentor.

 
Underwater Photography   (PHO-379)   3.00 s.h.

Course Description
The student will be able to demonstrate photographic skills and knowledge associated with underwater photography. The photography in the underwater world includes photography basic skills, exposure, focus/perspective, motion control, and image composition. Additionally, the student will distinguish between analog and/or digital camera systems, system housings for water immersion, apply available light and/or strobe lighting techniques, practice photo systems maintenance and film selections for successful image capture.

Learning Outcomes
Through the Portfolio Assessment process, students will demonstrate that they can appropriately address the following outcomes:

  • Compare and contrast pros and cons of using conventional analog and digital cameras for underwater image capture.
  • Recommend the use of analog and/or digital cameras for underwater photography and justify those recommendations.
  • Evaluate and demonstrate conditions and techniques used for successful underwater photography in diverse underwater conditions.
  • Compare available light and strobe lighting for underwater conditions while minimizing camera-to-subject distance for optimum results. Include an example of each light source result.
  • Demonstrate 3 examples of underwater special effects photography achieved by manipulating various camera controls.
  • Explore both automatic and “managed” camera exposure settings including a visual example of each and explain your preference based upon your results.
  • Compare and contrast wide-angle and standard-angle zoom lens settings by providing an example of each setting.
  • Explore and select your preferred computer application(s) for image editing and archiving. Explain your plans for managing and backing-up your image collection.
  • Explore and demonstrate 2 examples of images created with minimal water depth for maximum clarity, sharpness and color.
  • Explain your plan for inspection and maintenance of your camera and water-housing for optimum protection of your equipment.
