Investigations 1: Meth & Mater

Among the goals of this class will be to better understand the language of photography in its various cultural forms and to investigate how different presentational strategies influence photographic meaning. The key question will be: how can a better understanding of photographic methods and materials help one use photography as a persuasive visual language and as an effective mode of personal creative expression. Students will explore how to further their technical skills in black & white and color; choose how to apply digital to their creative practice; and develop creative projects in a variety of genres while engaging various discourses on contemporary photographic practices.
