Professor Terry Towery
Office Hours are Monday 4-6 pm by appointment
This course is an introduction to the principles and elements of black and whte photography. although the lectures may seem to focus on technique the focus of the course will emphasize personal creative expression.
Textbook: London and Upton Pohotography any edition is fine
ART 308 students should see me individually to work out a semester long project. You will be expected to participate in all other class assignments. The critiques will be aimed at your individual project. Since this is the advanced section of the course I expect you to have some idea as to where your vision is leading you. You should determine what you are interested in concentrating on for the semester and Propose that to me in a clear and uderstandable manner. I expect you to set specific goals and achieve them. I expect to see progress on the project at each class session.
- You must do TWO photography exhibition reports. These shouild be more than one but not more tha two double spaced pages. I want you to see and expereince photography first hand and not through reproduction.
Final portfolio is 40% of the grade for this course
Materials needed for this course:
of 36 exposure T-Max or Tri-X Film (I suggest t-max)
* starred items may be shared
This Calendar is tentative and may need to be changed to accomodate . It may be necessary to change these dates to accommodate unforseen circumstances such as visiting lecturers. In addition to the above dates there may be a quiz on the technical aspects of photography. There will usually be lab time given at the end of the class session. I plan to lecture the first half of the class sessions and give lab time the last part so please be prepared by bringing materials to all classes to work in the lab. Failure to do so may be considered an absence from class.
