Course description:
Designed for students who show evidence of a strong foundation in black and white darkroom practices. The course will examine a variety of techniques that include Polaroid transfer, Cyanotypes, Tonning, Liquid emulsion and Digital painting. Students will experiment with image manipulation on different supports including 3-D. Class time will include visits to museums, field trips, technical demonstrations, darkroom work, individual and group critiques.

The course is designed for advanced independent students wishing to add the element of experimentation to their work in photography. This course is designed to expand the student’s photographic vocabulary, to encourage experimentation, utilizing a variety of materials and techniques, and to push the boundaries of what makes a photograph.
In technical terms the class will be concentrated primarily on the experimentation of alternative techniques and the development of a personal portfolio. Class time will include slide presentations on work by a wide variety of photographers, past and present, to help clarify project goals and possible approaches as well as to inspire students in their own work.
During class time there will be technical demonstrations, critiques and photo-shooting field trips.
