Gelatin silver print by Hannah Davis from ART 370 Alternative Photographic Processes
To overcome this gap I have almost always offered an ART 370 Special Topics course designed to expand on ART 120. In my first year we offered Digital Photography. Another semester was Alternative Photographic Processes. Most recently was a digital course on Portraiture and Lighting. In addition I regularly have students doing Independent Studies to further develop their knowledge and experience of photography, often based on shooting film. So beginning this spring I will attempt to broaden the photo curriculum by adding a regularly occurring course to compliment ART 120.

For the spring I will be offering both courses: ART 120 Photography with a digital emphasis and ART 370 Photography: Analog Methods. (Next year the analog course will have its own course number.)
If you have time, let me know what you think by posting a comment as I consider how to broaden the photo curriculum.
