Objective:

Students hone skills in black & white 35mm film photography including shooting, developing, and printing to develop their artistic vision and begin creating a cohesive photography portfolio. 

Course Description:

Develop your artistic voice and advance your photography portfolio. In this class we will focus on individual instruction around both conceptual and technical approaches to black & white film photography. Students will be pushed to delve deep into their ideas to plan a coherent project and better articulate their artistic goals.  We will use film cameras and college level facilities to practice shooting, processing, printing, editing, and sequencing. By the end of the week students will have a set of portfolio-ready prints.  This class is ideal for students with some darkroom experience or who have completed Experiments in the Darkroom.
