This 21-credit program is for students interested in the photograph as an art form and in the various means of producing such art. Accordingly, the program offers instruction in both traditional and digital photography as well as in electronic media. Students interested in film production and technology may elect to take a course in electronic cinematography to broaden their experience in photo-art media
Courses in this program show the student how to use both 35mm SLR cameras and digital cameras. Traditional darkroom techniques and use of an enlarger are taught, as well. In digital courses, computer imaging software such as Adobe Photoshop is taught and used. Advanced courses teach the use of large-format film cameras, professional photographic techniques, and the creation of complex photographic effects. Students may also study film production and technology by using one of their elective courses to take COMF 473, Electronic Cinematography. At the conclusion of their studies, Photography/Art minors are required to exhibit a body of superior photographs.
