There are two stories to tell when photographing a subject: ours and our subject’s. What are we trying to say when we make pictures? What is it that we are drawn to when we choose a subject and how do we use the language of photography to represent the essence of what's idealized through that subject? Through weekly photographic and writing assignments students work through these questions while they shoot and sequence to tell a story that reflects how the human condition expresses itself. We discuss the use of different camera equipment and lighting techniques and how those can be utilized to translate our vision. We also look to the work of contemporary photographers such as Alessandra Sanguinetti, Latoya Ruby Frazier, and Gregory Halpern, who are using photography in innovative ways. This class is designed for the photographers who are looking to begin a new project, refine an existing one or are looking for new questions to ask when approaching a subject. A Guest Speaker will join the class for one session.
