ART 359   Topics in Photography Pinhole Photography               3 credits
Pinhole artists translate photography into their own style through a simpler technology that invites manipulation and invention. One way to extend your work is to experiment and take risks. Pinhole photography makes you take risks. Without the trappings of modern equipment to burden your understanding, you will confront photography from the basics on up. New work will build upon your risks eventually leading to new personal styles and ideas that might even extend into your traditional image making.
