Subject Description

Each student will learn to use both film and digital photography in developing a creative imaging project of his or her own choice.

Students develop skills in the use of image editing software to enhance, select and combine images that they have taken for the project. We'll use the darkrooms of the Edgerton Center to develop film for scanning and chemical enlargement. We'll also use the digital imaging facilities of the Center, which include scanners, Macintosh workstations, cameras and printers. Work sessions will be interspersed with chalk talks and demonstrations.

For the culminating project, each student will be expected to produce a duplicate set of black and white and/or color prints: one to keep and one for display at the Center along with a writeup and digital copy as the project output.
