Massachusetts College of Art and Design Photography Department:
MPPH-336/536: From Still to Moving Image

This course is designed to develop students' fluency in moving image practices, with an emphasis on digital video. Drawing and expanding on their existing skills as lens-based image-makers, students complete a series of moving image assignments culminating in a final video project. We will consider the various ways in which photography and video intersect in the contemporary art world, with relevant screenings of diverse examples of time-based media works. Technical demonstrations and assignments are aimed at increasing skills in video and sound capture, non-linear editing, and preparing video works for screening and exhibition.
Open to matriculating MassArt students only

MPPH-301/501: Introduction to Digital Photography

Students are introduced to the creative and technical possibilities of digital photography while exploring photographic history and current practices. They learn how to use a digital camera and computer imaging software to create photographs through raw file formats. Topics covered include camera operations (aperture, shutter speed, ISO, focal length) as well as photographic concerns such as lighting and composition. Assignments target the weekly lesson and aim to push students’ creativity by applying the tools learned. Our goal is to discover new ways of looking at the world by heightening our awareness to the subtleties of light and color, the abstraction of shape and the communication of concepts behind a photograph.
