ARTT 040. Photography I

This class introduces students to the traditional craft of silver wet dark-room photography. Though black-and-white images can be created digitally, enough visual and technical complexity remains in silver gelatin printing that many artists continue to work in this time-honored medium long after the "digital revolution." Students use film cameras, film, and light-sensitive paper to create a final body of work. Weekly critiques, photographer research projects, and at least one field trip to look at art make up the class.
Prerequisite: ARTT 001
