ART 275 Color Photography (3 credits)
This is a comprehensive introduction to photographing in color. Students learn how light influences color, how colors interact within an image and how color influences meaning and emotional impact of their images. Presentation topics include the use of color in contemporary fine arts photography, digital color printing techniques and technical concerns in using light and film. But this is a hands-on course and the emphasis is on each student’s creation of a rich portfolio of color images. This course will include a brief overview of basic camera use. Students who have completed ART 172 will find some aspects of the course easier but there are no prerequisites. There is no darkroom work since all prints will be made using high-quality, digital, photographic printers. This course may be taken as an independent study.
