Loaner cameras available for this course  
Students study photography as a form of powerful communication about people and the world. Using both digital and darkroom-based processes (COVID permitting), they master camera controls, lighting and composition in their in-depth explorations of various subject matter. Students learn about images within the role of media, and the difference between shooting for the needs of editorial publications (photojournalism) and personal, subjective explorations of a topic (documentary). Assignments may include portraits, school/community news, sports, photo essays, and other investigations of real-world subjects that interest the student.

Advanced students develop longer-term projects and photo essays that demonstrate more advanced skills and ideas. Continuing to focus on photography as visual storytelling, students may use digital and darkroom-based processes (COVID permitting) in expressing those ideas with increasing power and control of craft. Students learn to push the boundaries of media photography, whether shooting for an editor (photojournalism) or for themselves (documentary). Assignments help direct the student toward a portfolio that reflects students’ growing proficiency, expression, and understanding of visual narrative.
