In DP1, basic camera skills, photo composition, and beginner photoshop skills are taught. A camera is not required, but is recommended. Camera Phones are sufficenet for DP1, however if a student decides to take DP2 a DSLR camera is strongly recommended. New assignments are assigned each Friday for student to take photos on the weekend. The next week, uploading and editing takes place during the class. If student do not have photos on Monday, they will complete a writing assignment for that week of editing.
