ART 2995 Basic Photography

Basic Photography introduces students to photography as an art form with emphasis on the technical and conceptual concerns of the medium. Students will learn how to use a 35mm film camera, how to develop film, how to make photographic prints from negatives, and how to develop a final portfolio. Readings, class discussions, and group critiques expose students to different artistic, historical, and conceptual positions on the medium and help students begin to understand and discuss their work and the work of other artists.
