1 - Photography as a process, and its areas of interest: the Object, the Camera and the Record;
2 - Light and the Object: basic lighting techniques in photography;
3 - Image formation: framing, exposure control, focus and sharpness;
4 - Image formation: point of view and focal length;
5 - The photographic record as a technique for the manufacture, reproduction and dissemination of images;
6- Artisanal images and technical images. some fundamental questions.
7 - Photography as a communication process;
8 - Photography and narrative;

Evaluation Methodology
Since the characteristics of this discipline require active student participation, it will be appropriate for the assessment of learning to be done on a continuous basis.
Thus, for each of the proposed Experimental Projects, developed in class, an individual technical report will be requested. The final grade will result from the arithmetic average obtained in the set of these reports. Examination tests must include written test (60%) and presentation of individual reports related to the monitoring of Experimental Projects developed in practical class (40%). The minimum grade for approval will be 9.5, on a scale from 0 to 20.
