Make photographs with meaning and purpose while exploring how cameras and lenses construct a visual word. Students explore the photographic process from the perspective of the photographer, and of the viewer. The course covers photographic essentials such as framing, focus, light, and the depiction of motion while students create a print-on-demand photo book that explores significant aspects of their experience. Classes will concentrate on camera use and technology, as well as on learning to assess and critique photographs. Students must must have their own cameras; some computers are available for student use.
