Description

RCARTS 260 (Photography I) is a studio lab course that meets the LSA creative expression and the RC arts practicum requirements. It is an introduction to the medium of film-based photography from the perspective of the artist. It includes an overview of photography’s role in the arts, the development of an understanding of visual literacy and self-expression as they relate to fine art photography, and the development of basic technical skills in both the black and white darkroom and the digital studio. Students will maintain a visual emphasis in both presentation and course work, and they will work with the medium towards the goal of creative expression.

Course Requirements:

Attendance is required for lectures and lab times. Students who do not attend the first class will be dropped from the course. Students are required to provide their own 35mm film camera with manual controls. A lab fee will be assessed.

Intended Audience:

RCARTS 260 is open to all UM students, but priority is given to RC students.

Class Format:

The course meets three hours a day, two days a week. Lectures and demonstrations will cover technical aspects, from camera usage to tools in the darkroom or Photoshop. Peer-based critiques are a regular part of the course.
