PHO 403 - Advanced Handmade Photography


This course is restricted to Juniors and Seniors. Art Education Photography students may take this course as a Photo Special Topic, if they receive permission from the chairperson of Art Education and Photography. The Advanced Handmade Photography class will build on skills developed in the required class Photo III: The Handmade Photo. In the Photo III class students are introduced to the 19th century handmade process of cyanotypes, Van Dyke, albumen and palladium. This advanced class will concentrate on one handmade process. Students will both improve their skills from this foundation and explore in more depth a variety of techniques associated with handmade process to create their images. Using digital negatives, students will experiment with a variety of papers and/or fabrics, toners, chemical formulas, and lesser-used methods unique in the process. Students will be expected to create a portfolio of images, keep a process journal, and conduct research about the process and its practitioners. This course will also help students further understand the recent resurgence of historical photographic processes as a contemporary art form. Prerequisites: PHO203 Photography III: The Handmade Photograph and PHO205 Digital Photography I (3 Credits)
