This course is a practical primer on visual language. Once a photographer understands what makes a good photograph—once he or she learns the visual language—they are well on their way to being able to “speak” that language, creating strong images that communicate their intention to the viewer. Photo “challenges” will be assigned weekly and analyzed at the next session, and a final project will demonstrate the skills and techniques learned. No previous experience is presumed or required. Students must have a digital camera that has a manual mode; point-and-shoots are OK if they meet this requirement. (12 hours/Beginning-Intermediate)
