This course will be a time to come together to understand basic concepts of using photographs to tell stories in a visual approach. We will also define what documentary photography means to you and others. You will be able to share your documentary project ideas, set new goals, edit your work, and to receive and give constructive feedback. Discussions will include techniques on lighting (natural vs. flash), the photographer-subject relationship, photo releases, and legal/ethical issues that may arise. You may continue with your current documentary photography project, or begin a new one for this course. Digital and film photographers are welcome. Photo assignments and reading material will be given. During editing sessions, you will bring in contact sheets, prints or a selection of digital photos to class. Some manual camera basics will be reviewed. A projector is available.
