Students in this course explore visual strategies for going beyond traditional modes of documentary image making. Whether you are a photographer with assignment experience looking to transition into making more personally expressive work or a beginner interested in making yourself more visually present in your photography, this class explores how the lines of photojournalism, documentary photography and art photography increasingly overlap today and the exciting possibilities that opens for us as photographers.

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.
