In this course, students will experiment with advanced black and white darkroom techniques which will offer them distinctive opportunities to explore how to make creative photographs. This course will introduce medium format film, multiple imagery, construction of narratives, toning, and split filter printing. Students will learn to master camera operations and film processing, as well as special effects and manipulations. In the last part of the semester, students will apply these techniques to the printing of photographs in a self directed project.
Note: Students are required to have their own SLR 35mm film camera with interchangeable lenses and manual settings. Cameras are available for checkout by photography students. For more information please call the Photo Lab Coordinator, 630-466-2287.
