PHOTOGRAPHY Art 237, Intermediate Photography: Black & White

A course in black-and-white photography extending the concerns of ART 136a or b. Students are introduced to the use of medium-format cameras and instructed in specialized topics such as night photography, the use of flash, and the manipulation of roll film; later in the term they learn basic digital scanning and grayscale printing techniques and explore the use of color in their photographs. Student work is discussed in regular critiques, supplemented by lectures and readings that consider the rich tradition of handheld photography and the production of artists such as George Brassaï, Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander, and Robert Adams. Enrollment limited. Materials fee: $150. Prerequisite: ART 136a or b or equivalent.
