Students will continue to master photography skills developed in Photography I. Technical proficiency with camera functions and composition will be increased. Posing and studio lighting methods will be introduced. This course explores the history, aesthetics, and the conceptualization of photographic imagery. Includes darkroom procedures in developing, printing, and finishing black and white photographic materials. All photography projects and sketchbook assignments will encourage the development of a personal visual style. Other topics include: special shooting techniques, multiple exposure, and painting with light. Students will explore the work of both historical and contemporary photographers. Via self- and class critiques, students will evaluate their own work and that of their peers. Participation in the student photography show is required.
