Photogram Assignment

photogram lecture.024


–Learn about the darkroom–procedures and technology (enlargers, chemistry, paper, exposure)

–Play with design — positive and negative space, opacity, designing within the frame

–Work individually to design 2 photograms–one focused on design, the other on meaning. In the spring we will revisit photograms: students will work collaboratively to design one large (16×20″) photogram using natural materials (leaves, sticks, etc) found on our woods walk.
