Even in this age of near universal digital photography applications (cell phones, credit card size digital cameras, digital SLR cameras, etc.) the highest quality photographs used in commercial and fine arts applications (publications, books, gallery and museum exhibitions, etc) are usually "made" with medium and large format film photography. Usually such professional quality equipment is beyond the means of most student photographers, however, due to generous equipment donations as well as a 20-year "investment" in professional quality equipment, we are able to LEND all students enrolled in this course, professional format photographic equipment for the duration of the term. This course will introduce the student to the "traditional" professional photographic formats, 120 medium format roll film and 4x5" large format sheet film, as well as professional level DSLR for medium format digital backs. This is an advanced photography course which assumes that all students will have basic competence in black and white film photography with demonstrated experience in negative film developing and black and white printing. As noted, we will lend each student equipment kits for the term, EACH STUDENT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CARE AND SECURITY OF THESE PROFESSIONAL CAMERA KITS, which, with reasonable care, will enable each student to produce b/w and color photographs of publication/exhibition quality, unattainable with traditional 35mm film/digital equipment.
