Photographers are story-tellers. My goal is to enable my students to tell
their stories, big and small, through the magical medium of photography.
Photo I- An introduction to 35mm, black and white film photography. Students
learn all technical aspects of handling a manual camera, processing film and
enlarging negatives. Students also begin to consider aesthetic concerns in
how to best present their subject and uniqe vision of the world.
Photo II- Building on the skills learned in Photo I, students refine their
photographic abilities and learn to manipulate light in more challenging
ways. As their knowledge grows so does their control which enables students
to create and express themselves with ease and confidence. Studio lighting,
double negatives and hand-coloring are introduced.
Photo III- This upper level course exposes students to a variety of films,
challenging subjects and alternate techinques. This exposure pushes them to
further hone their skills and personal aesthetic. High speed film, strobe,
infrared film and cyanotypes are introduced.
Photo IV- This advanced course challenges students to use the skills and
processes introduced in earlier sections of photgraphy to create personal,
powerful bodies of work. Medium format cameras, pinhole cameras, liquid
emulsion and fiber base printing are introduced.
