This course introduces the concepts and methods of developing a series of images that enhance and challenge students’ personal vision and visual vocabulary within the medium. There are weekly slide lectures for the first half of the term to illustrate various genres and movements within photography, including: Light, The Photographer’s Eye, Landscape and Response to Place, Portraits and Self Portraits and Documentary work and the Decisive Moment. Weekly shooting assignments are given with in-depth critiques of the work to follow.
