Course Description

ONLINE: Have you ever found yourself spellbound by an ethereal black-and-white photograph, with something about it capturing your attention and compelling you to take it in? Did the image make you feel that way because it spoke clearly to you? Or did you feel an unconscious connection to it that drew you deeper into the frame, something familiar but without a name? It's likely that you have had these emotional reactions to such photos, but you may never have considered what it takes to create this type of image. This discussion-based course will reveal the elements that come together to make powerful black-and-white photographs. We will explore the techniques required to translate emotional meaning into visual art. Students will learn to produce striking black-and-white images by either shooting in black and white or converting color images. You may use a digital camera or a smartphone with the help of simple photo-editing tools. Much of our time will be spent reviewing participants’ photos. | Facilitated discussion.

Max enrollment: 12.
