For the first day of class, students should be prepared to share their sources and influences and to describe where you find your ideas and motivation. Are there sources outside of photography such as music, books, poetry, life experiences, or cultural experiences that you look to for inspiration? Time will be limited to give minutes to share this topic with the class. Students should also be comfortable with Zoom and practice sharing their screen while in an online meeting.
