Four weeks, November 20 – December 11, Tuesday evenings, 6-9pm
Room 110, Eiben Hall, Chaminade University
Instructor: Minny Lee
This course is designed to help photographers initiate a photography project from a very personal place, whether it is derived from dreams, memories, day-to-day encounters, or family stories. Through slide presentations, an examination of world-renowned photobooks, reading materials, and constructive critiques, the class progresses towards developing a personal project into a tangible and substantive format. For the end of the course, participants create a body of work with a written statement and should be comfortable with editing, sequencing and evaluating their own photographs and those taken by others.
Course participants are asked to attend the first class with about six to twelve photos of their topic of choice or examples of past work as jpeg images in a thumb drive or as small size prints (4×6 or 8×10 inches).
Prerequisite: A basic knowledge of photography. Open to all levels and all camera types.
