Capture One Certification at SCAD Savannah

Capture One Certification at SCAD Savannah

On February 20, 2015 the photography department of the Savannah College of Art and Design hosted an eight-hour workshop organized by Capture Integration Inc. of Atlanta, GA, for thirty students who all became certified as Capture One Assistants.

The workshop featured SCAD photo alumni Josh Booth, who was trained in Finland on this software by the company and Steve Hendrix from Capture Integration, lecturing on the specifications of Capture One 8.0, cutting edge technology for digital capture of professional digital photographic images. Students from Professor Tim Keating’s Control Light One and Control Light Three classes took the rigorous training. All the students passed the certification test at the end of eight hours and will receive the software and certification as an additional benefit.

Capture One is a Danish company that makes Phase One digital medium format capture backs used in the most demanding professional applications in commercial, scientific and fine art photography applications. Capture One can be used with most medium format capture backs and with professional quality DSLR cameras. The students gained a greater degree of control over their workflow and became more marketable with enhanced digital technician skill sets.

Thanks to everyone who made this exciting event a reality.

Landscape Photography elective

Enjoy Landscape Photography?
Then consider this fine elective for Spring Quarter, MW 2:00:
PHOT 323 The Contemporary Landscape cross-listed with
PHOT 756 The Conceptual Landscape

Create a cohesive portfolio of original landscape images while studying the roots of the genre in painting, literature, poetry, music, film, and photography, along with its contemporary practice. Where do our ideas about landscape come from? What makes a landscape beautiful (or not)? How does landscape-as-art reflect (and influence) our changing ideas and attitudes about nature, culture, religion, aesthetics?
