Primary Instructor:

RCARTS 385 is an advanced photography course that addresses the need for individual, interdisciplinary projects using photographic materials and facilities. A series of advanced photographic assignments are presented which allow students to develop skills in using large format cameras and negatives, color film, digital printing, and studio lights. They can be adapted to support independent study in which individuals develop their own set of interdisciplinary objectives. The course is intended to meet both the need for second semester skill development in photography and the need to correlate those skills with a student’s other academic interests.

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 385 is open to all UM students, but priority is given to RC students. It is strongly recommended that students take RCARTS 285 prior to enrolling in this course, but students with darkroom experience would also be welcome to enroll.

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.
