Photographer as Artist, Artist as Photographer


Course description

When is a photograph just a photograph? What can elevate your photograph into a work of art? This course will explore these enduring questions and help you grow, artistically and stylistically, as a photographer and artist.

Although entrenched in technology, photography shares much with classical art forms. Technique (and equipment) may indeed be the foundation of photographic expression, but any foundation is vulnerable without an understanding of the core disciplines, such as composition and tonal layering.

While the emphasis is on creativity, other topics covered include:

  • outputting options (silver halide, digital, alternative processes)
  • articulating an artistic vision
  • gallery protocol

…as well as discussions on photography’s status within the fine art community.

Students will be encouraged to prepare two single image assignments to be respectfully critiqued by your classmates and instructor. Some experience with photo editing software and/or darkroom skills is an asset for this course.
