This 5-week class focuses on gelatin silver paper and camera-less techniques such as lumen prints, black and white photograms, and sculptural paper work. By taking new artistic endeavors through the creative process, this workshop enhances imagination through experimentation, exploring the relationship between seeing and understanding. Applying a combination of exercises using body and light, color theory, and darkroom techniques, this class develops an holistic approach to creating new photographic works. Experimentation broadens the modern definition of photography and answers the question: How does light impact us?

Course Level / Prerequisite: Intermediate: You are familiar with a camera, whether film or digital.
