Photography is often thought of as only a still image within a frame. This course looks beyond aperture and framing, and instead focuses on how the medium can be transformed and expanded through approaches to installation, inclusion of objects, multimedia components, and the process of making conceptually driven work that expands beyond the frame. Weekly lectures, in-class workshops, group critiques, and individual meetings guide students to cultivate strong concept-development skills, along with a broader view of photography as a whole. This course is limited to 10 students.

Prerequisite: Intermediate: You are familiar with a camera, whether film or digital. You understand aperture, shutter speed, exposure, white balance, histograms, and how to control focus. You are comfortable editing and processing your images. You may want to learn how to utilize your camera in a more thoughtful and articulate way, or learn more about lighting or how to utilize theoretical concepts in relation to your portfolio of work.
