ABOUT ADVANCED PHOTO

This course will explore both historical and contemporary techniques in photography. Students will work in darkroom and studio locations and use advanced manipulation techniques to create a coherent body of work.

Advanced Photography (GD4400) is an honors class, open to advanced students wanting to explore film photography and photo processes. In this class, students build a pinhole camera, work in the darkroom and scan negatives to work digitally. Film photography has become more of an art than a commerical tool and this class emphasizes the artistic and creative aspects of the photographic image. Students are pushed to create original imagery using various analog and digital techniques. The class concludes with an exhibition in the school gallery which allows students to write artist statements and curate their own show.

As an honors class, the overall project is determined by the interests of the student. Each week, techniques are introduced that can then be incorporated into the finished artwork. Students are introduced to alternative processes such as cyanotypes, gel medium transfers and liquid light. These become incorporated into digital techniques involving Photoshop and the digital darkroom.
