This series of seminars will run every other week on Thursdays from 6pm to 9pm, beginning September 21st. Topics covered include visualizing a project (pre-visualization through post-visualization) and how to produce and properly sequence a portfolio. Students will also choose topics of importance to them to research and present to the class, with the instructor as moderator. Example topics may include studio photography, flash photography, portraits, etc. The class will also grapple with individual photoshop problems. Students bring in their work to share with others, to discuss and to get feedback in order for new ideas to evolve within a body of work. Students will produce a body of work and share their progress with the class each meeting. While the emphasis here is in the digital realm, film photographers are also welcome.
