Photo I is a semester course that introduces the four major areas of study in the fine arts: Themes and Forms; Core Concepts; Techniques and Tools; and Culture & History.  The course is designed to provide a strong foundation in traditional black and white photography techniques, while building a strong foundation in the visual arts.  Signature experiences will be tempered by smaller assignments, technical lessons and demonstrations.  Photo I is designed to provide a foundation that students will refer to in all future courses in the fine arts and photography.
