Title:  The Art of Photography

You know about meters and F/stops, now you want to know more. Explore the possibilities for photography, learn what master photographers do and how while gaining an understanding of the aesthetics and design principles of photography. You will share your work and have the opportunely to learn from your classmates and the teacher. Plan to complete five assignments and one Sunday field trip.

During this workshop you'll see slides of master works from the history of photography including Henri Carter-Bresson; Ernst Haas; Edward Weston and Eliot Porter. The Sunday field trip can be worked in anytime during the course to fit the groups schedule. We will go to an area in or near San Angelo to photograph. Students will provide their own transposition and meet at a spot we all agree on for the field work.

Digital SLR camera with lens is recommended. If you do not have a digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera any film camera with interchangeable lens may be used by photographing with color negative film and then have a CD made of your scanned film images. Either way you will get the images you want ready for class on a USB flash drive. You need an understanding of the fundamentals of digital photography to take this course, or a portfolio of work that demonstrates your ability to complete the assignments.
