Photography is an ever expanding and multi-faceted medium. Some methods have been used for over one hundred years, and are still used today! In this class students will experiment with alternative techniques such as cyanotypes, photograms, photomontage, and creating photographs on different surfaces (such as fabric, wood, and more). These processes only require the right mix of chemistry, sunlight, and objects to work! This hands-on class will focus on experimentation, creative thinking, and one's own development of photographic expression.
