ARTS241 Beginning Black-and-White Photography

Credits: 3
Offered: Fall, Spring, Late Spring, Summer
Prerequisite: None

This course teaches students who have no prior knowledge of photography how to process film, make prints, and begin to use the medium of photography to expand their personal vision. The course covers basic functions of the camera and processes in the darkroom; relationships between the photographer and the subject; motion in relation to the lens-formed image; narrative sequencing in the print and its presentation; and issues concerning portraiture and its inherent social and psychological implications. Throughout the term, the use and manipulation of light in the environment of Florence is a continuing subject for exploration of the lens-formed image. Critiques are held every three weeks, and at the end of the term a selection of approximately 10 prints of work done throughout the term is submitted for final evaluation.  (Students are required to have a 35 mm camera with manual control settings.)
