Photography Foundations (PHO2136.01)

Terry Boddie

This is an analog film-based black-and-white photography course designed for those with little or no experience in photography. Emphasis will be placed on the application of technique in terms of personal expression through the selection and composition of subject matter. The course comprises technical lectures, darkroom demonstrations; lectures on historical and contemporary photographs as well as class critiques. The course will begin with a 2-D design assignment using photograms and continue with others that will teach camera controls, exposure, film processing, printing and structuring narrative using single and multiple images. Manual analog 35mm single lens reflex cameras will be available to borrow from the photo cage for the length of the term.
