"Enrollment limited. Light is everything in photography. It reveals and hides; describes and interprets what we see. But the camera sees the world in its own way. It speaks a different language than our eyes alone. In this course, we will learn how to bridge that gap and to work with the visual language of the camera. The course explores the interrelation of the aesthetic and the technical in photography. We work with the methods and materials required in difficult, dimly lit situations. Stretching our vision and technical ability, we translate light, color and ideas into images. Software processes, equipment, camera techniques and their use in creating evocative images are demonstrated and discussed. Regular assignments and critiques are an important part of the course. Prerequisite: Introduction to Photography 1 or equivalent experience. Bring samples of your prints and negatives or digital files to the first session for review.
