    Black-and-White Photography
    "The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera."- Dorothea Lange
    This is a course designed to introduce students to the history, aesthetics, principles, and production of black-and-white photography.  A 35 mm manual SLR camera and a $40.00 lab fee are required for participation in this course. 
    Course Requirements:
    > Notebook (Binder)- Must be organized and neat and should include the following: All handouts, class notes, negatives (in sleeves), contact sheets, test prints, film exposure sheets, and enlargements
    > Creative Journal- Must contain brainstormed lists, sketches, and ideas, as well as photographs and artwork related to a specified theme, and reaction and personal commentary on classroom discussions and experiences.
    > Photographic Assignments- Must be submitted on time and must be COMPLETE (all components)!
    > Course text: "Black& White Photography, a Basic Manual" by Henry Horenstein, as well as additional handouts.
    Additional Notes:
    This course is  designed for students with experience in drawing-and-painting courses, as well as additional art experiences and interests.  In addition to the work completed during class time, students will be expected to spend much time on idea development and photo processing outside of class.  If students put in the required time and effort (and then some), they will walk away from this course with not only new ideas and viewpoints, but with a strong and diverse photographic portfolio. 
    This is a list of acceptable SLR Film cameras that will work for this course.  There are many other cameras that will work, but these are some of the most common.  If you have any questions, I would be happy to help find a camera to use for this class.
