This studio course seeks to broaden students’ approach to photography, both conceptually and formally. The course will examine artists’ constant negotiation of evolving technologies and the effect the medium has on culture. A broad range of new tools will be introduced, including medium and large format film cameras, high-resolution digital cameras, Photoshop, color, and BW pigment printing, and studio lighting. The course will require independent and collaborative assignments, augmented by field trips, readings, and discussion.
Students will be responsible for completing a series of photographic assignments. Active participation in the seminar and the development of a final project is required. Emphasis will be placed on the final project resulting in a portfolio consisting of 12 –16 photographic prints.
