PH 201 Silver & Ink: Intro to Photo
This course introduces the fundamental techniques and aesthetic vision of photography, from traditional analogue roots to contemporary digital skills. Students learn to operate SLR-style cameras for proper exposure, using both film and digital capture methods, and learn appropriate workflows to transform film negatives into fine-prints in a traditional darkroom, as well as to edit and output archival inkjet prints in our digital print studio. The course includes demonstrations, lab work, readings, field assignments, and critiques. Students may work with their own cameras or check-out cameras through the department.
