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 inch analog black and white murals, and 44 inch wide ink jet 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. Please note that this course will require additional materials to be purchased by the student.
