ART 129 - Introduction to the Camera

3 Cr.
Contact Hours Per Week: 6 Lab

A comprehensive introduction to the 35mm camera and photographic imaging. Students will study: how the camera controls affect the image (f-stop, shutter speed, lens), how to develop and print black and white film (enlarging, dodging, burning, filters), the relationship between composition, camera angle, and meaning; how to present images and how to make groups of images work together. Study and discussion of their photographs and those of major photographers will develop the students ability to create compelling and personal images and enable them to understand and read photographs. Students are expected to have a fully adjustable 35mm camera with light meter. Students can expect additional expenses for film and supplies.
