The primary goal of the course will be to emphasize the technical aspects
in photography such as composition, editing, and presentation. Students
will be working on weekly assignments that would directly correlate with
the material covered in class. This course will require students to work
extensively on assignments and to improve not only their conceptual
understanding of the medium, but especially their technical, shooting and
editing knowledge of photography.
Each student will choose a documentary photography project that he/she
will work on throughout the semester in conjunction with the weekly
assignments. The final project is due the end of the semester and must
exemplify all skills and concepts that were covered in class. Several
Photoshop tutorials will also be incorporated. The sessions will cover the
basic tools applicable to image manipulation, color correction, and
output. The course and its content will be, of course, to a large extent
determined by the questions raised by students, their levels of experience
in the medium, as well as their final goals.
