This class is for those who want to attain a basic knowledge of photography - from operating a 35mm manual camera to basic darkroom practices. Topics will include techniques of proper exposure, the principles of composition, and an understanding of lighting. Film processing and printing will be the emphasis throughout the course.
While students will learn technical skills, they are also encouraged to explore the aesthetics of photographic expression through assignments and slide lectures of contemporary and historical work.
In addition to in-class meetings, there will be optional shooting trips as well as museum and gallery visits on some weekends. Students are strongly encouraged to attend these sessions.
