Intro to Photography
Beginning & Intermediate
Photography is painting with light. Using digital cameras and
cell phones, we will explore a wide range of photographic
genres–Environment, Portraiture, Nature, Street, and Still life–in both
black-and-white and color. Instruction will place more emphasis on
photo-graphic “seeing” than on technique or equipment.
Like so many disciplines, photography skills increase with practice. Students that have taken this or other Photography classes are encouraged to take this class and improve their skills through repetition and feedback!
