Course Description

There is something beautiful about a photo that truly captures the essence of its subject. Capturing the essence is a skill that anyone can gain – with patience, practice and some reflection. In this course we will learn what it means to see and respect our subjects before we open the shutter.

We will participate in structured independent exercises with the camera and complete written reflections on our photographic practices, compare it to other art forms and discuss creativity. The overall intent of the course is to help casual photographers become more conscious of your approach to photography, develop a more individual perspective and greater intention with the camera.
