Art & Design – Photography Concentration

The Photography concentration introduces students to the history, theory and practice in commercial and fine art photography. Students work in film, digital and alternative processes formats. The program is designed to introduce students to traditional studio lighting techniques, location shooting, and contemporary digital photography printing practices. Students work with the professional grade printing (e.g., Epson printers) and editing software (e.g., the Macintosh Adobe Suite). In addition, independent and directed study in studio art projects offers the student a sound foundation in all aspects of the medium.
