Today’s pocket-sized camera phones would be a source of wonder for 19th and 20th century photographers. Millions of citizens practice smartphone photography, but it has also attracted artists using the camera phone and Instagram in their creative practice. In this course, students go beyond the basics to achieve the full artistic potential of their smartphone. Students also learn how to use Instagram to reach a wide audience for their photography. Camera phones are not just our daily companions but an artistic tool with unique capabilities: the size, immediacy and accessibility of the smartphone camera make it naturally suited to candid portraiture, street photography, photojournalism and an online audience. The course studies photographers who are challenging and innovating smartphone photography on social media, includes a guest speaker, and opportunities for students to make and critique their images.
