Whitman College Art Department

Photography

Photography classes explore the practices of film and digital image-making, with photography broadly defined as optically gathered images reproduced through light-sensitive materials.
Beginning classes are technically driven to produce traditional fine art prints as two-dimensional reproductions of our three-dimensional, time-based existence.  Intermediate and advanced classes explore a wide array of equipment and techniques.

The darkroom classes will use film cameras and enlargers while exploring the chemical manipulation of light-sensitive materials to produce images. The digital classes use cameras and scanners to create digital files that will be manipulated with various software programs and printed.
