Full course description

Instructor: Robert Pluma 

Learning how to make a decent photograph is easy. Making compelling images with an awareness of photography’s often ambiguous role is another story.

In this course, we will question the very notion of objectivity in images, learn why some suggest that photography is dead, and figure out where to go from there. We’ll look at practical techniques, approaches, and mindsets for making images with intention. Students will learn how to examine their own work, make critical decisions about it, and set out on a path to making that work mean something or do something. Through a mix of practical exercises, presentations, and group editing sessions, we will all be better, more cognizant image makers at the end of this course. (12 hours / Beginner)

This class will meet Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8:30 pm ET.
