Gain a critical understanding of digital photography and develop key technical skills.
This is one single module from the Certificate in Photography. This module is designed to enable learners to explore the basic principles of digital photography including understanding input and output devices; workflow and post-production using the digital darkroom. Learners gain an understanding of the effective use of industry-standard image manipulation software and the processes from image capture to manipulation and output.
This module is suited to photographers (amateur or otherwise) who wish to learn more about workflow and the creative suite software. Learners will have access to iMacs, creative suite software and professional printers during classes and at the weekends.
This course focuses on the development of professional skills; while it does not sit on the national framework, the module is drawn from Griffith College’s suite of QQI-validated programmes.
