Online Learning Class

This class is about experimenting with a hands-on approach and pushing the boundaries of what a “typical” photograph is supposed to be. We explore different techniques in creating original imagery (this includes experimenting with different cameras and other visual sources and using multiple images of various sizes), work spontaneously with chance, and turn mistakes into advantages. Designed to challenge students’ creative approach, this class opens new possibilities and allows for innovations in one’s own photographic practice. Students are encouraged to use resources that they have on-hand at home to challenge what they might not have thought of using before in their photography.
