What you'll learn in this photography class:

Photographs tell stories. As writers use cadence, sentence structure, or the sounds of words to help advance the story, photographers use light, shape, and color. 

In order for photographers to communicate effectively, they must go beyond employing general visual principles. Analyze the challenges and potential solutions involved in photographical composition. Investigate how photographers say what they say based primarily on ideas suggested in the seminal writing on photography, John Szarkowski's The Photographer's Eye. 

Through regular shooting assignments that deal with the principles of photographic vision and composition, students will learn how to formulate, strengthen, and translate an idea into the visual form of a photograph.

Required Material:
Participants must purchase the book John Szarkowski's The Photographer's Eye
