From the Paper:

"Trends are moving toward using digital SLR cameras in various productions for photographic work. Using digital removes the necessity of a darkroom and costly chemicals and equipment. It saves time and money as well, since you do not have to develop negatives. The digital image can be taken straight into Photoshop where it can be manipulated to your desired specifications and then printed out on photo paper. In the Digital Photography course, the student will use their own digital camera or ones provided by the school. The course will be similar to the black and white photography class already offered but with a few changes. Instead of teaching the student how to use the darkroom they will learn photo-retouching skills along with color correction. Discussions will be lead by the instructor about new digital technologies and famous photographers. Students will take photos on different subjects and themes and later critique each other's work in class."
