-Monday, Wednesday, Friday-
During the term we will be exploring why we take pictures?† Do we do it to remember, to immortalize a moment or to portray a story or idea?† There will be eight assignments during this term and a portfolio will be due as your final at the end of the quarter.† I would like for your work to begin to have more meaning for you and for the viewer.† By the end of the quarter, you will have a better understanding of why you take pictures and you will be able to make your work more polished in camera and in the darkroom.
Required immediately will be a 35mm camera with built-in light meter, adjustable shutter speed, aperture adjustment and manual focus capabilities.† For economy and durability the Pentax or Nikon starter cameras are recommended (Nikon FM10).

Attendance is mandatory.† Three consecutive absences will result in dismissal.† Any four absences is cause for failure.† A significant late arrival or leaving early will be counted as half absence.† Attendance at critiques is expected even if assignments are not completed.† Missing a mandatory class, such as a critique, will cause for one full letter grade dropped in studentís grade of a particular assignment.
Participation is mandatory and open and courteous discussion is expected.† Learning to communicate about photography is essential to developing photographic vision and creative expression.
You must come prepared to work every class.† Plan to bring/purchase the supplies you need prior to every meeting.† Being broke will not be an excuse for incomplete assignments.
