The Enduring Image: Defining Your Personal Style and Vision (Online)

Description



Many artists are defined by a signature style. This style can be expressed through subject choice, artistic technique, or other conceptual and presentational methods that make a particular photographer’s work easily identifiable and unique. It is these qualities that separate an enduring image from tomorrow’s fish wrap. By reviewing the work of established masters and emerging talents, we will delve deeply into what makes a photographer’s work distinct and successful. Students will edit their own work and critique each other’s documentary projects; the end result will be a twelve- to twenty-image portfolio that embodies each student’s singular vision. (12 hours/Intermediate-Advanced)

Please note: This course is offered in an online format and will not physically meet at CDS but will have regularly scheduled virtual sessions.
