Photography Minor

The Photography minor stresses a fine-art approach to photography. It provides the basics of black-and-white as well as color photography and digital imaging. The emphasis is placed on gaining experience in a wide range of pictorial photographic applications. Once a student has mastered basic photographic technique, materials and processes that are used to manipulate photographic imagery are explored. Creativity and personal expression are emphasized in all of these courses.
