This course will present color photography in a different light. Discovering one’s color aesthetic will be the basis of the class. Students will work mainly with color negatives. Through assignments, presentations, and critiques students will learn to observe the color of light. Students will develop a better understanding of their own color vocabulary and how to achieve it through a variety of methods: film choices, filters, artificial lights, photoshop, time of day one photographs, to printing in the darkroom. There will be lectures and readings on the history of Color Photography. Students will be expected to produce a portfolio of prints, write a research paper, and to participate in critiques.
