SART 29 Photography I - The Intentional Photograph

With a focus on building an artistic voice, this class is an introduction to photographic methods, theory, and ideas that emphasize the creative possibilities of digital photographic technologies. Studio emphasis is on digital workflow from camera input and digital darkroom editing, to final-screen based output. Throughout the term, students will investigate how to hone a sense of intentionality through every step of creating, editing and sharing photographs to find their creative voice. Using a digital SLR camera kit and complimentary digital tools, students will address essential technical, conceptual, and artistic problems associated with the medium and inevitably build a deeper sense of self through the mindful construction of each step of the creative process.

Through assignments, guest artists, lectures, reading discussions, and critiques, students will develop the ability to think and participate in critical contemporary art discourse regarding images and image-making. At a time when photography's popularity and ubiquity have challenged its relevance as a fine art form, this course will explore the photographic image as a powerful and versatile tool for contemporary artistic self-expression. Enrollment limited. Supplemental course fee required.
