ARTS 241 - Photography I (SA)
An introduction to analog black and white photography, emphasizing creative expression and critical engagement with photography as a form of art. Students learn the basics of operating a 35mm camera, the principles of film exposure and processing, fundamental darkroom technique, and select alternative processes. Through study and experimentation students gain a material understanding of photography as the manipulation of light and time. Thematic projects push students to cultivate their powers of perception, analysis and expression. Students must provide a camera (35mm) with manual focusing, aperture, and shutter speed adjustments and a light meter. The student’s cost for materials is $300-$500.
