ART 240 - Photography I

This introductory course explores the proliferation of photography in contemporary culture. Students will learn how to look at and speak about images critically with a focus on composition, light, context, sequencing, authorship, and the social responsibility of being a photographer. This is a studio-based class and students will make pictures and engage in critique. We will use digital circulation tools such as Instagram and other photo-based platforms. Only a smartphone is required.
