Advanced Photography

Technical skills acquired in Photography (ARV410A) are further refined in this course. Experimental techniques, ranging from historic and antique processes to digital imaging, are introduced (and, for those taking Advanced Photography 2 or 3), explored in more depth. Students experiment with studio lighting, digital imaging, non-silver processes, hand-coloring, toning, and mixed-media. Participation in class critiques, during which images created by students are analyzed for aesthetic, conceptual, and theoretical concerns, is required. The third mod, which is optional, is focused on portfolio development as students work to develop their individual voices through the photographic medium. Student work is entered in regional and international photography contests and exhibited throughout the year in the George School galleries. Since the curriculum changes every year, students are encouraged to take this course more than once. Materials for this course may be purchased in the school store.
