Introduction to Photography

Shape, contrast, tone, texture, light and shadow. When you master shooting images with film in black and white, you master these fundamentals of photography and gain a better understanding of color and digital photography. This hands-on course combines conceptual information with technical skills. Students learn how to compose an image and shoot in natural light as well as develop a vocabulary for “reading” and evaluating images. Topics also include the 35 mm format, lenses, aperture, light meters, ISO, depth of field, and shutter speeds. Students participate in demonstrations, an in-class shoot, critiques, lab/darkroom sessions, and final presentations of photographs.
