The ability to recognize the marriage of great light and subject matter is an invaluable component of photographic understanding; it is also central to what makes certain pictures exceptional. In this course, students explore the fundamentals of light and discover how to translate its many qualities into photographic forms of expression. Lectures and discussions about the work of great photographers deconstruct the source and direction of light, what affects light's quality, and how light contributes to an image's success.

Prerequisite: Advanced: You are comfortable with your camera, whether film or digital, and with your photographic practice. You have already produced or are working on a body of work. You are proficient in Adobe applications such as Photoshop, Lightroom, Premiere, et cetera. You understand printing or portfolio revision processes. You may be seeking ways to strengthen your work through sequencing, theoretical readings, and group critiques.

Courses are subject to minimum enrollment. Please register early, within five days of the start-date, to reduce the likelihood of course cancellation and to ensure you receive all course-related materials in time to prepare for class.
