What makes an object beautiful? How can that same object be shown in a disturbing light? How has the camera evolved throughout the last century, and what impact have these changes had on the art world? Can a photograph created for business purposes, such as a billboard, ever transcend commerce and become art? As a photography major, you'll explore such ideas.
Of course, you’ll spend much of your time practicing the art of photography. You’ll learn the basics of composition, color balance, and the use of light. You’ll also experiment in the darkroom, practicing a range of techniques to control the way your image impacts the viewer.
