Advance technical skills in the darkroom while honing your artistic voice. Starting with camera operations and moving through black-and-white darkroom processes of printing and shooting, you will gain skill in dodging, burning, cropping, and adjusting contrast and exposure. Field trips, extensive darkroom practice, gallery visits, and discussions will support you technically and conceptually. By the end of the course, you will have completed an individualized project.
Requirements: Students provide their own 35mm SLR camera that allows manual control of shutter speed, aperture, and focusing. Additional photography equipment is available to borrow during the program.
