IPHOT 1200 Photography Lab I

Photography studies begin with this Photography Foundation course. The intention of Lecture & Lab I is to prepare students to deal with a vast palette of traditional, wet lab black & white photographic materials and to serve as the technical complement to the conceptual and critique based Visual Seminar I. In Lecture & Lab I, students learn the basic properties of light, camera and lens functions; control of exposure and development including basic exposure index testing and pushing and pulling of film stocks; basics of B&W printing including split filter printing and print toning; working with available light; and presentation options of the final imagery. The emphasis of this course is to reinforce good overall habits and make high quality negatives as well as fiber-based prints.
