ARTT 004A. Photography I: Foundations in Photography

The purpose of this class is to introduce students to film-based photography as the primary image-making medium. Students will learn how to develop negatives in the darkroom, scan, and process the image with industry-standard software, then output to a digital printer. In the class, we will discuss design principles that will help students develop a personal vision for their work and explore creative ways of thinking and talking about photography. We will travel to various places off-campus to take pictures. Guest speakers and weekly research presentations on historically significant photographers will round out the experience.
