Title:   Introduction to Analog Photography      

Course Number:      PHTC 0005B
Campus: Boston-Fenway   
Room: TBA

Course Description:

This is a hands-on course that will introduce students to analog photography. Students will learn how to make pinhole cameras, use 35mm SLR film cameras, process film, and create black and white prints in the darkroom. This course will emphasize techniques that will allow students to use analog cameras and printing methods as a creative tool. Class time will be divided into demonstrations and supervised darkroom sessions. Focus: This class does not require that a student has any experience with photography or using a traditional darkroom. During this course students will develop their understanding of how a camera works and how to use the darkroom. There will be weekly demonstrations and assignments to teach students the necessary techniques to produce quality negatives and prints. Students will be expected to make one long-term project which will be presented to class on the final day. Level: introductory.
Any materials necessary for the first class meeting will be communicated to enrolled students by the instructor in advance. Otherwise, materials and supplies will be covered in the first class meeting.
