Students will learn the basics of black-and-white photography including camera operation, film exposure, processing, composition, studio set-up, basic lighting, and printing. Students will learn to use all parts of the darkroom for processing and printing black and white film.They begin the course building their own pinhole camera and will be exposed to different terms, techniques, and various artist's works. Students will present their artwork to the class for exhibition and criticism. Returning students will expand on their darkroom skills; they will develop a portfolio of their images and learn to manipulate their images in the darkroom. Students are encouraged to bring their own cameras but class cameras will be available for check out.
