ART 86 — The Intuitive Photographer: Developing Your Visual Fluency
Like learning scales for the musician, technical practice is a key to making expert, evocative photographs. Each week, students will be assigned practical exercises designed to hone photographic intuition and develop visual fluency. Class time will be balanced between discussing the techniques behind the skills and insightful critique of both homework submissions and award-winning photographs. By the end of the course, you will have developed a sense of your own visual language along with a fundamental technical knowledge of how to photographically express it.
This course is designed for photographers at all levels. It includes two half-day field shoots and a one-on-one photo tutorial with the instructor that will allow each student to explore in more depth techniques or exercises of their choice. The field photography sessions will take place on October 15. Students will schedule an appointment with the instructor (on December 3 or 4) after the course begins.
