to photograph people in a new, original way. Students will learn about
technical aspects such as camera placement, movement, gesture,

photographing at night, photographing on location versus studio,
reportage and storytelling. Class sessions consist of slide lectures
about the history of portrait photography, guest speakers and critiques.
Build on the basics and master the skills and ideas advanced photographers
use in a fun, low-pressure class. Open to anyone able to shoot a photo
and import it into a computer. In this class we’ll use the digital camera as
a fast way to learn the essentials of photography. We’ll learn-by-doing,
exploring professional techniques while creating a portfolio project
(on any topic of your choice) to show your advancing skills. If you’ve
always been interested in photography, but have put off becoming
great at it, this is your chance.

Through the application of color theory, students will learn how to see
light and shadow, edges, forms, and spatial relationships, as well as integrate these elements into composition. Students will paint from
observation, memory and imagination.
