This course explores the multifaceted discipline of photography, offering students at all experience levels an insight into contemporary photographic practices.  Students will be introduced to a wide range of creative concepts and essential techniques.  Alongside learning the fundamentals of photographing a subject, students will have opportunities to develop and articulate the ideas that rest behind their images.  


Each week, we will explore a different genre of photography, with accompanied technical instruction that focuses on refining individual skill.  Students will be encouraged to develop their own visual language as they capture and share photographs throughout the term.
