In this advanced studio course, students improve their creative and technical skills while exploring questions related to the status of the photographic medium and the art of photography through reading, discussion and assignments. Presentations on historical and contemporary artwork introduce various photographic genres and emerging technologies. Using Adobe Lightroom, students develop effective workflows for sorting and editing images, refine image adjustment
skills, and perfect printing ability. As they work toward developing a personal visual language, participants experiment with new approaches to visual storytelling, sometimes pushing their projects beyond the still image.
