Digital Photography


 

During the summer semester 2010/2011 I was a TA for the Digital Photography class at the CTU in Prague.

The exercises were split in two parts. In the first half, we gave an introduction on how to handle digital cameras in a photo atelier and explained to the students how the different apparatures and lighting methods work. Then, we let the students work in the photo atelier and outside in order to let them try different approaches including a product presentation, a portrait, an architectural study, a report, and finally, a semestral project.

During the second half of the exercise sessions, we provided different Photoshop tutorials in order to highlight the possibilites and different aspects of digital processing. This included memory cards and how different manufactures use different formats to store the raw data captured by the digital camera. We then explained how Photoshop (and similar software) work on this data by applying filters or manipulating frequencies, for example. At the end of the semester, the students handed in their semestral projects on one of two subjects: "Journey" and "Colours of Life". We passed a vote and elected the best student projects, which where then exhibited at the CTU in Prague.

The technical part was thought by Prof. Ing. Václav Hlaváč, CSc.: http://cmp.felk.cvut.cz/~hlavac/
The artistical part was thought by Mgr. Roman Sejkot: www.SEJKOT.cz
