ARTS 159 Photographic Explorations

Photographic Explorations is an introduction to the workings of light and cameras, interpretation and perception, philosophical and psychological experience to explore image culture. In addition to learning techniques for producing light- and lens-based images, students will become acquainted with historical and contemporary uses of these techniques. Through a combination of classroom talks and hands-on projects, students will explore the principles of photography. The course is designed to serve students with no prior background in photography and is not intended for visual arts or photography majors. A camera that can take electronic still images is required (this can range from a digital SLR to camera phone).
