ART 172 Traditional Photography I (3 credits)
This course investigates film-based black and white photography as an expressive and creative medium. Lectures, demonstrations, slide presentations and student assignments aim to develop visual perception and an understanding of the aesthetics of photography. Students will develop skills in using 35mm film cameras effectively. They will also learn traditional darkroom techniques to develop film and make enlargements. Adjustable 35mm cameras will be provided to those students who lack equipment. This course can serve as a foundation course in photography for art majors and as a stand-alone course for non-majors.
