This online course is for anyone looking to try new ways of taking pictures and is not afraid to experiment. We work with images in sequences, alongside text, in image exchanges, and more. As we start to embrace our current limitations, we become free to generate new approaches to imagemaking. We discuss photographers and artists such as Duane Michals, Sophie Calle, Guanyu Xu, and Hayahisa Tomiyasu and read texts by Fred Ritchin, Susan Sontag, and Hito Steryl, among others.  Guest speakers Guanyu Xu and Ariel Goldberg will each join the class for one session.

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.

Note: Students should be familiar with Lightroom and Photoshop to archive and edit projects.

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.
