Photography is often thought of as a still image within a frame. This course expands the definition of a photograph and focuses on how the medium now includes approaches to installation, the incorporation of objects and multimedia to make a holistic work that expands beyond the frame.
This course introduces a new perspective to storytelling via more experiential and spatial elements combined with the essence of photography as a medium. Additionally, this course presents a brief survey of photographic artworks and contemporary approaches. Through projects and exercises completed in class, students’ images may evolve beyond their current framing.

Course Level / 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.

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.
