PHO 330 - Color Photography


A firm foundation of basic color photography concepts and techniques is formed as a starting point for further work. Through a series of assignments, class presentations and discussions (that include both film and digital technologies) students will learn about color, color balance, color of light, reflective color, color theory, hue, saturation and luminosity. Using this information, students will learn how color is communicated and how it impacts the viewers response to an image. Significant historical and contemporary color photographers (such as Herold Edgerton, William Eggleston, Stephen Shore, Annie Liebovitz, Susan Meiselas, Uta Barth, S. Billie Mandle and others) will be presented and discussed. Students will use both film and digital cameras to complete assignments and create their final portfolio. Students will also learn how to scan reflective/transparency media properly and calibrate the equipment they use. Students will learn how to see “color cast” in files and prints and how to correct it (both globally and locally). Critiques and lectures will guide students through technical and aesthetic issues as they complete portfolio of 12 to 15 matted color prints. Formerly PHO 304. (3 Credits)
