This course is an introduction to basic photographic techniques, and will help students develop skills such as composition, exposure controls, recording techniques, digital file management, image manipulation, lighting and studio practice, sequencing, and printing. Conceptual approaches will be cultivated through assignments, critiques,  reading, and research. Furthermore, this course will explore photography as contemporary art and how the medium is intimately connected to our critical engagement with culture and identity. Throughout the course, an emphasis will be placed on students developing an understanding of the complex nature of photography as both a document torn between truth and fiction and a mode of expression.
