ARTS 130 - Photo I: Darkroom
Basic Photography is a studio art course designed to develop the hands-on skills necessary to produce and identify the elements of a good photograph and to acquire a thorough working knowledge of film and digital  equipment. Students will gain an understanding of the aesthetic and technical areas of photography as a fine art. Class lectures, discussions and darkroom lab assignments will deal with photographic composition, criticism and history, camera and lens types, film types, and film and paper development systems. Fundamental knowledge of computer  programs such as Photoshop will be introduced later in the semester to combine and enhance photographic imagery.  Students enrolled in Studio courses must devote a minimum of 4 - 6 hours per week outside of class to develop and complete assignments.  These times are flexible and can be rearranged with the instructor.
