Contemporary Photography

This course is great for students who are interested in exploring and experimenting in photography as a creative medium. Not only will students learn technical aspects – metering light, manual digital camera functions – we’ll also learn about significant artists working in photography through discussion of contemporary concepts and issues. You’ll learn to judge the quality of your exposure in the field — including which settings, equipment, filters, accessories and techniques are optimal for each occasion. This class will help you to think critically in the field and make more purposeful decisions. No experience is necessary for this class, but we ask that students provide their own digital SLR (Single Lense Reflex) camera with manual control options.
