In this course stu­dents learn the tech­ni­cal and aes­thetic com­po­nents of pho­tog­ra­phy that affect the read­ing of a print. Through class assign­ments and cri­tiques, stu­dents develop a work­ing knowl­edge of pho­to­graphic tools and processes, achieve a com­fort level with entry-level dig­i­tal cam­eras and processes, gain a basic under­stand­ing of the his­tory and evo­lu­tion of pho­tog­ra­phy, become famil­iar with both con­tem­po­rary and tra­di­tional meth­ods of pho­to­graphic expres­sion, and engage crit­i­cally and cre­atively with pho­tog­ra­phy as a method for prob­lem solv­ing. FRE­QUENCY OF OFFER­ING: This course is typ­i­cally offered in both the fall and win­ter terms of every aca­d­e­mic year, though sched­ul­ing may vary accord­ing to future term circumstances.
