with Stephen Greenberg

Tuesdays 7:30 - 9pm 

This survey course for beginner to intermediate students will present an integrated view of the development of photography from the earliest photograms to the digital word. In particular, it will focus on the history of purely technical developments (cameras, processes, reproduction), and how they affected and were affected by individual practitioners (Daguerre, Cameron, Stieglitz, Steichen, Bourke-White, Parks), “art” movements (surrealism, pop art, minimalism), and outside historical events (wars, economic depression, social movements). Class will pay particular attention to issues of race and gender on both sides of the lens.

All About the Light 

with Eliot Cohen

April 6 - April 27

Wednesdays 10am-12pm

Natural light has many characteristics. It can illuminate, but also convey mood or feeling. Light can be beautiful but it can complicate what we are trying to express. Our class will be about using natural light to best advantage in our images. We will consider the light in the scene and how it is represented in our files. Student files can be shared in dropbox. New shooting or existing is appropriate. Students should have comfort with the Lightroom Classic Develop module. Suitable for intermediate or advanced students.
