The photographic process is a complex system of countless considerations. Its applications range from the "one-hour photo snapshot" to some of the most beautiful creations of the visual artist. This class is designed for any student who is interested in black & white photography irrespective of their level of achievement. A unique blending of assignments, field trips, critiques and class discussions not only motivates and stimulates, but raises each participating student to a higher level of understanding photography and their own personal vision. In addition, through demonstrations and supervised darkroom sessions each student is taught the skills needed to produce a gallery standard black & white print. Topics covered include: exposing and developing a good negative, using different film and developers effectively, analyzing your negative, making a fine print, archival processing, gallery presentation, and the photograph as a personal statement.
