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.
