Understanding digital photography and digital images

Posted on Nov 11, 2013 by Adobe Education Last updated on Jun 8, 2017


Digital photography is fast, fun, and easy. One of the coolest things about digital photography is that you can see your picture right away. With just a few clicks of the mouse you can download, organize, edit, and share all of your digital photos. In this activity, students take photos and gather images from various sources, identifying elements of visual design that reflect good composition. Students also learn about scanned images, Camera RAW, video stills, and key digital image terminology.

File Updates:

​The How To Work with camera Raw handout is very helpful in explaining and showing what a raw file is in photography. I will use this in both my Graphic Design class and Photography class.
