ART 124 Photography
Students will first be introduced to analog photography through processing film, darkroom techniques, and approaching B/W photography as a means of visual expression. The principles of design as a means of visual communication will be an emphasis in the course. The projects deal with texture, light, and space, with emphasis on the development of personal ideas. Some photographic history will be discussed, as well as current issues in art and photography. The course will transition from wet darkroom techniques to computer-based image creation. (Each student must have his own 35-mm film camera with manual controls.) This course is offered in the spring semester 2012-2013.
