This class is for students who want to create dynamic compositions and develop a heightened sensitivity to photographing people in various surroundings. We investigate different approaches to photographing people in the context of architectural space by concentrating on the shapes, lines, movement, light, shadow, and color in the environment. Through assignments and critiques, students are inspired to find their own voice. We discuss compositional tools, aesthetic intentions, and effective editing. The course includes comparative study of historical and contemporary photographers and filmmakers, from documentary photography and environmental portraits to conceptual styles.
prerequisite: Photo I or portfolio review
