Distance Learning Class via Zoom

Photography is the art of looking at the same world as everyone else, but challenging yourself to see something new. This class will consider pre-existing ideas about photographs and push students to think about using images to not just record reality, but to present it as a unique experience.

Designed to take the advanced beginning photographer to the next level of expression, the course focuses on analyzing and practicing the basic technical capture of photographs and using cameras to interpret the world around them. The class will weigh technology and creativity equally and begin to solidify the students’ understanding of the histogram, deliberate exposure for output, understanding of depth of field and how to simplify or complicate subjects through its use, and how shutter speed can lengthen or compress the representation of time in a single photograph. Students will be given examples of how photographers have met these concerns in the past and conceptual projects will be assigned using the methods learned. In order to create a proven method for success, students will draw on their own personal interests and histories and will keep a visual journal of their progress to track their creative process.

A Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera or digital mirrorless camera capable of manual control settings is highly recommended for this class. However, all types of cameras are welcome, including film cameras.
 

Born in Rochester, NY, the home of Eastman Kodak, Todd Felderstein (https://www.toddfelderstein.com/) claims that with these roots he was destined for a career in photography and the visual arts. First introduced to the camera at a very young age via the Pentax Spotmatic, Todd continues to shoot professionally (with current equipment!) in tandem with his career as a director in film & theatre. Early successes include the “Anti-Smoking” media campaign for the City of Los Angeles’ that was featured in print and on billboards throughout Southern California and a series on martial artists that was published by Blackbelt Magazine. Todd also has a wide array of music videos, documentaries, short and long-form motion productions and was recently a finalist in the “Emerging Filmmaker Program” at the Cannes Film Festival. Todd has taught youth programs in photography and filmmaking all over the country, established the youth documentary program at the San Pedro Int. Film Festival, and is the former executive director of The Story Project, a nonprofit whose mission furthers communication skills in at-risk teens through a curriculum rooted in the media arts.
