Expanding Visions 20 is a photography class being offered this spring into summer. It is open to all interested photographers.
Expanding Visions 20 is a marriage of a field trip class with a class in photographic seeing. This nine week class (Thursday evenings, May 1st thru June 19th, and then on July 17th) will open your mind to new ways of looking at photographs, subject matter, equipment, and techniques. It will also allow you to explore parts of the City that you may not have experienced before.
The format of the class is simple: We start with an introductory session. We will discuss equipment, techniques, and the specifics of the course; a term project will be assigned. For the next two weeks we’ll go on field trips to different places around town and work on the assignments. The following session will bring us back indoors where we’ll share our photographs, talk about our experiences, and evaluate what and how well we learned. Two more weeks of trips and assignments will be followed by another review. Then, the last trip and assignment and the final review (including the term project presentations). The basic thread running through the assignments in Expanding Visions 20 is an assortment of techniques and experiments pertaining to photography’s most import component—light. Not too complicated, is it? Lots of fun and educational; but most of all, it will expand your vision in the photographs you take, and allow you to grow as a photographer.
