The use of photography to create a portfolio of artwork, exhibitions, and installations is necessary for artists in all visual media. Visual representation on websites and in print is paramount to the artist career. Students learn how to photograph two and three-dimensional artwork in a studio setting and on location. Instruction addresses a wide range of issues including: artificial and natural lighting, digital camera operation, image editing software, and output options, including the importance of file types. By participating in lectures, demonstrations, and shooting assignments, students acquire the skills necessary to create a coherent visual portfolio of their work. No prior background in photography is needed.
