This course is designed for students who have successfully completed Beginning Photography and want to study more advanced technical and conceptual approaches to contemporary black and white photography in a 35 mm film-based, wet lab environment. Techniques such as the use of studio lighting, light meters, toners, hand coloring, and solarization are explored, with special emphasis given to understanding the conceptual framework for the production and analysis of both personal and commercial photographic imagery. Students are required to provide their own 35 mm camera with manual controls.
