Advanced Photo Course Description
This visual arts course is a continued exploration of darkroom photography through assigned and independent projects, slide lectures, reading discussions and a research assignment. Lectures, discussions and research will focus on broadening knowledge of photography’s history, contemporary themes and essential critical theory of understanding photographs. Through in-class demonstrations and hands-on class time, students will explore experimental processes including ortholitho film, cyanotypes, and salt prints. This course will emphasize the inspiration behind a photograph and the ideas expressed as a result. Articulation of these ideas as well as constructive criticism and problem solving will be practiced regularly in project critiques.
