The artistic choices we make with our cameras tell us about who we are, what we love, and how we might "speak" to the world with visual images.
This course is for all photographers who would like to take their work to the next level by learning new techniques, discovering new ways to see the world through a lens, learning from the work of legacy and contemporary photographers, and focusing on themes which deepen the creative process.
You will review creative tools such as composition, lighting, perspective, motion, contrast, selective focus, and post-production techniques through in-class exercises and assignments. We will discuss the work of past and present photographers, and how working in a series is both challenging and liberating.
You will choose a theme to work on throughout the course, so that your final project will be a collection of images interwoven in style and subject. Class review will help with the final selection of your images and the refinement of your work. The class will be encouraged to submit their work for an exhibit in the WICE gallery, the creation of a catalog/book or an article for publication.
Students can expect to:
Become more familiar with their camera and its creative and technical options
Learn about exposure, composition, and how to engage subjects
Learn from the work of other photographers
Move their work in new creative directions
Participate in a friendly critique session of their work
