ART 372 Traditional Photography III (3 credits)
Provides an opportunity for building a portfolio in any area of photography: black & white (silver based), digital imaging and color photography. There will be limited lecture/demonstration of topics in light, studio lighting and presentation options. Extended portfolios of a number of photographers will be analyzed and discussed. The emphasis is on developing each student’s unique photographic project with the help of the instructor and the class. Projects may revolve around traditional genres like the landscape, the portrait, the nude, or the social document. They may focus on formal concerns emphasizing abstract qualities or they might concentrate on areas that don’t fit into pre-established categories. Projects may be based in mixed media or straight photography. May be taken as an Independent Study.
