The photography course serves as an introduction to photography, beginning with the basics of how the camera works, and the principles of design. Throughout the course, students gain an appreciation for the camera as a powerful, expressive art making tool. Assignments range from projects designed to teach technical proficiencies, to thematic, content driven projects.
The selection of student work explores key elements of composition, such as the rule of thirds, symmetry, leading lines, golden triangles, point of view, patterns and textures. Many of the student works were inspired by the influential French photographer and filmmaker Henri Cartier-Bresson, who created the concept of the Decisive Moment. Here, students found the moments within their homes that that were perfect.
