Creative Photography

This hands-on course will help students find and develop their unique personal vision. As students become more familiar with their camera’s capabilities combined with aesthetic principles, they will change how they see through the lens. By practicing technical skills in portraiture, lighting and still life as well as numerous in camera techniques, they will explore the language of photography. Through experimentation they will develop their own self-expression. Every week aspects of fine art, nature, portrait, journalism, street photography and the business of photography will be discussed. Using weekly assignments and open critiques, students will learn to talk about their work and constructively comment on others work. Students must have access to a camera with adjustable settings and access to a computer to process their images.
