This class looks closely at expression, gesture, performance and narrative in self-portraiture. Through weekly assignments, students experiment with different approaches to self-portraiture, become more comfortable in-front of the camera lens, and develop a visual language to express themselves through their photographic work.

Prerequisite: Intermediate You are familiar with a camera, whether its film or digital. You have an understanding ofaperture, shutter speed, white balance, and 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 theoretical concepts in relation to your portfolio of work.

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.
