Photographically derived imagery is increasingly seen in public spaces in addition to gallery and museum settings. This course offers students an opportunity to work with both digital and traditional means of attaining large scale photographs for installations in and out of doors. Through readings and presentations we will explore the issues of scale in contemporary photography both here in the United States and abroad. Students are expected to do presentations, assignments and a final project.
Each student will be offered the opportunity to generate 30×40″” black and white murals, 17″” wide digital prints from the Epson 3800, 20×24 fiber prints and 16×20 RC prints. The medium format and large format camera will be introduced, along with electronic flash and an introduction to scanning and image manipulation using Photoshop CS.
