Course Description

This class is for photographers who want to tell personal stories with their pictures. Students are encouraged to develop their own voice through their photographs, and to explore ideas that could grow into long-term projects. Students develop strategies for building sequenced stories, and are free to choose between documentary, multimedia, or conceptual projects. Through critique, we learn how to create dynamic photographs with an emotional message and the elements needed to tell a story. We discuss compositional tools, aesthetic intentions, and effective editing. A comparative study of historical and contemporary photographers and filmmakers, from documentary to conceptual, is presented. Customized assignments fit each student`s project. prerequisite: Photo I or portfolio review
