Great photography starts with a vision. Through a series of hands-on classes, we will
explore how to develop your vision with a camera. With examples, readings and
discussions we will engage the two key components of a purposeful photograph:
previsualization and technique. We will further navigate the camera’s operation with
a focus on depth of field, ISO/ASA, shutter speed, focal length, and more. In weekly
assignments, each student will apply these techniques to their own unique visual
interpretation. This class is suited for advanced beginners to intermediates. LIMITED
Participants will need a camera that has the ability to manually adjust shutter speed, aperture, and ISO. Digital or film cameras
may be used.
