You should be able to get back into your account by Sunday, October 1st. 

PG 235 - Photographing Art & Monuments

The course illustrates the basic techniques (i.e. lighting, exposure, composition, color, etc.) used to photograph archaeological sites, architectural monuments and landscapes, as well as works of art and archaeological finds, thereby putting students directly in touch with the city’s material culture and cultural heritage. Students start with a detailed overview of the digital camera’s automatic and manual functions and finally learn the basics about management of files on the computer. The course brings together the technical and aesthetic components through an analysis of some of the more important art historical themes that characterize the contexts students are photographing. The main aim of the course is to develop compositional abilities as the key to take better pictures, rather than relying mainly on editing techniques. The latter will be introduced in their basic components.
