MIDTERM EXAM STUDY GUIDE


THE READINGS


Find the appropriate readings for each week on Blackboard. Look under “Electronic Reserves” in the left sidebar.


Each week you should read the short articles about who we covered in class. For example, the first week week we covered Niepce, Daguerre, and Talbot. They are in order.


READING RESPONSES (summary)


For each reading, you’ll write two sentences on regular paper: 1) the main point of the article, and 2) your impression of the photography by that person as seen in class.


Hand write them on paper.

Hand in at midterm and then again at end of semester.
