ARTS 253 Film Photography

Last offered Fall 2013

An Introduction to black and white film photography. Students will shoot with cameras provided by the art department; both 35mm single lens reflex cameras and 4x5 inch monorail view cameras. Students will learn how to process film and make prints. The assignments will guide students through the ideas and aesthetics related to these particular cameras, primarily in the 19th and 20th centuries. Some thought and discussion of what role, if any, film photography has in the 21st century, after the advent of digital. Meant as a companion course to Arts 254, (Digital Photography) the assignments in this course will allow students to engage with the aspects of photography which are best done with film and silver printing. Substantial amounts of work will be done outside of class, and in the Spencer Art darkroom.
