Based on ideas suggested in two seminal writings on photography, John Szarkowski's The Photographer's Eye and Stephen Shore's The Nature of Photographs, this class functions as a primer of visual literacy for photographers. Through weekly shooting assignments, lectures, and critiques, students learn about balance, tempo, ways of organizing space, the significance of geometric structure, and why the edges of the frame are important. In-class exercises examine how we see what we see, and enable participants to produce stronger, clearer pictures.

Prerequisite: Open to All Skill Levels: Students ranging from beginner to experienced will be successful in classes.

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.
