Pretty Photo

Photo I is an introduction to the basics of the craft and aesthetics of black and white photography. Students will learn how to operate a 35mm camera, expose and develop film, and make prints from negatives. Students will learn how to see photographically by using frame and vantage point to define and compose a subject. Students will also learn how to control light, contrast, depth of field, and motion in photographs. These skills will provide the student with the vocabulary and knowledge to create, discuss, and understand the meaning of photographic imagery. Students provide their own 35mm SLR camera with manual exposure mode and a 50mm lens. Students will also purchase film, paper and other supplies.
