PHOTOGRAPHY ART814 Prerequisite None.
Semester course. Requirement Students must have
their own 35mm camera. A SLR or single-lens
camera is recommended. Basic Photography deals
with the power and impact of visual images in our
history and in our society. Through a
workshop-type approach to basic photography and
its components, i.e., light, subject, camera, and
film, this course attempts to describe methods of
and approaches to reading, understanding, and
appreciating various types of visual images.
Emphasis is on black and white still photography
from the shooting through the processing and
printing, to final mounting and framing
techniques. Visual and written presentations, as
well as reading assignments also make up a
substantial part of the course. Articulation
Agreement Upon completion of this course, the
WSHS student would be exempt from (and receive
credit for) Basic Still Photography (Art 140) at
Holyoke Community College.
