This introductory film photography course is suited for both total beginners and digital photographers ready to jump into analog. Students learn the fundamentals of black and white film photography: camera operation and settings, film exposure and development, and essential darkroom printing skills. Weekly assignments and lectures on historical and contemporary photography guide students in exploring the technical and aesthetic possibilities of photography. The majority of class time is devoted to working in the darkroom and building printing techniques.

Students new to photography may want to take Film Camera Basics prior to this course for an additional foundation.
