This class is designed to provide an introductory course to film photography. While modern photography may be overwhelmingly digital, learning the art and technique of film is crucial in developing photography skills. Film photography brings you back to the basics and is a great teaching tool because it provides you the fundamental elements of photography in a tangible way. The film medium enhances the young artists’ eye as it requires a more meticulous and methodical form of image making. When you use film, you have the opportunity to develop your own images and witness firsthand the science of photography. Students will learn the process from start to finish using black and white 35mm film with daily prompts that will include still life, outdoor, and portrait photography. Through these objectives students will understand how a camera works, darkroom safety, and the art of creating a beautiful photographic print. Students will leave this course with a feeling of accomplishment and craftsmanship as they practice the rewards of this classic photographic craft.
