Online Learning Class via Zoom

Our eyes see the world one way; how the world is shown in a photograph is completely different. In order to make pictures that say something, a photographer needs to understand this key difference. This is the essential point of John Szarkowski’s The Photographer’s Eye.

Through class lectures, weekly shooting assignments, and in-class exercises based on the ideas in Szarkowski’s book, students will dissect the elements of photographic grammar. The problem of communicating through a photograph is solved through the photographer’s decisions about where to stand, when to press the shutter, what to include and exclude, and what part of the subject best speaks to a larger whole. Class exercises will refine the way students observe, take, and read images. The process results in photographs that are more personal and expressive, clearer, and made with a point of view.

This course is strictly limited to 12 students.
