Introduction to Photography

Introduction to Photography is a beginning level course stressing technical and critical photographic skills. The class develops one's capacity to produce well wrought, effectively structured pictures. Additionally, students broaden their abilities to look at images critically so that they are better able to evaluate and, ultimately, value the success of their work and the work of others. Introduction to photography is a basic requirement for students who intend to pursue photography as a major, and serves as a survey for those who choose to take the course as an elective.
