Enrollment limited. Once you've mastered the fundamental skills required to make a photograph, how do you develop your aesthetic and conceptual abilities? Technique, while important, is only one part of the equation when you're setting out to make a strong body of work. Students challenge their visual preconceptions and expand the ways they express themselves through their photography. There are regular assignments, readings, and group critiques. The goal is to have a clearly articulated personal style and the beginnings of a solid body of work by the end of the term. Students can work in color or black and white, traditional or digital. Prerequisite: Introduction to Photography 1 or equivalent experience. Bring samples of your prints and negatives or digital files to the first session for review.
