For students new to film photography or seeking a refresher, this 3-hour course teaches the basics of the film camera. The course covers the essential functions of the analog film camera: shutter, aperture, light meter, and ISO dial. Used together, these functions are the foundation for successfully photographing with film. This course will also provide an extra foundation for beginning photographers intending to enroll in Black-and-White Film Photography I. Experienced digital photographers may be ready to enroll directly in Black-and-White Film Photography II after taking Film Camera Basics.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Beginner. No prior photography experience is needed for these foundation courses.
