Photography I, II, III
In these courses, students explore the technical basics of photography, including the workings of the 35mm camera, darkroom procedures, lighting, and composition. Technical, aesthetic, and artistic quality is emphasized as students learn to use the camera as an art tool and photography as an art medium. Students will be involved in an ongoing investigation of this art form through the study of historic and contemporary visual media, demonstrations, critiques, and visiting artists. Assessment is based upon the quality of work produced, presentation of work (dry mount and matting) quizzes, and comprehensive examinations.
Prerequisites: One trimester of Art Foundation; also Photography I for Photography II, Photography II for Photography III.
