Photography as Art
Prerequisite: Studio A & Studio B
Photography becomes a tool for creative expression in this ½ year course, focusing on artistic form and attention to light. Understanding composition and concept will be emphasized. This course is primarily an art class, using photography as part of the art making process along with drawing and sculpture. Students will experiment with different types of cameras and processes, including black & white and digital. Alternative process photography will be explored to create artworks incorporating both fine art and technology. Famous photographers will be an inspiration to students as form, lighting techniques, and style are studied. This course will introduce students to new approaches to photography as an art medium and aid in developing skills for working independently.
