Photography I: (PHTI-UT 1001)

There is no prerequisite for this course. Many photographers who have been utilizing digital cameras are turning (and returning) to traditional, silver-based film and papers. This intensive course is designed to introduce and explore the practical and creative applications of analog photography. Students will learn camera operation, composition principles, and metering techniques. Supported by a comprehensive lab facility, students will learn film processing and archival projection print enlarging methods as well as the basics of print finishing and presentation. Classes will incorporate critiques of student work, slide lectures of important historical and contemporary imagery, hands-on studio and laboratory demonstrations, and field trips. Students will be assigned reading for class discussion and relevant photography exhibits to view. Students are required to complete a minimum of 4 hours of lab work per week (hours arranged by the student) in addition to regular class attendance. This course is designed to engage the student in a photographic dialogue within a productive semester. A lab fee is charged for this course.
