Digital photography imagePhones, Pads and Photographs

Smartphones, Tablets and Social Media have revolutionized photography and how we see the world.  This course will offer students an in-depth knowledge of how to use their iPhone and Android devices and will introduce them to contemporary debates on the impact of smartphone and tablet camera devices.

Through a series of lectures and workshops, the course will offer you the opportunity to gain in-depth experience of camera, photo editing, social media and creative apps. You will also be encouraged to develop your creative instincts and experiment with innovative ideas.

You will be introduced to the work of leading practitioners in smartphone image making, both professional and amateur, and will analyse the creative, photographic and editing technique in their images.  You will also work on assignments that challenge you to experiment with the visual potential of the camera in your pocket.

You will consider the impact of technology and techno-culture on how we communicate in our everyday lives and will be introduced to current debates about the democratisation of photography, Selfie culture and creative autobiography.

You will end the course with an online portfolio of images that will form the foundation of your individual photography practice.
