Note: This course was formerly ARPH 210.
This course will introduce you to the fundamentals of photography. No previous photographic experience is required. The focus will be to capture and record your experience in Italy through weekly photo walks around Perugia, an ancient Umbrian hilltop town, using your camera to create a portfolio of these images. We will explore the cultural phenomenon of photography and the role it plays in society. Students will learn basic concepts, processes, and techniques, including camera usage, exposure controls, manipulating and printing digital photographic images, and print presentation. At the end of the semester, student photographs will be displayed at the Umbra Art Show.
