In the first part of this course, we scrutinized the essence of “camera vision”. We discussed the mechanics of that vision – the particular attributes of the machine that makes photographs, and how it is similar to but different than the operations of our human optic system, as well as the unique perceptual testimony offered by the resulting photograph, which is a two-dimensional document quite separate from the “real world” it represents. The aim, then as now, was to increase students’ awareness of the photographic process, so they can better control and direct its outcomes.

In this second class, we’ll continue exploring the obstacles and limitations imposed by cameras, lenses, and “film”, and we’ll use lectures, presentations and assignments to learn techniques that overcome and exploit those troublesome realities. On the schedule are discussions of color, abstraction, foreground and background, “the democratic frame”, nominal subject, the qualities of light, ambiguity and misdirection, the power of black, and “the radiant vision”.

For best enjoyment of this class, it’s recommended that students have taken “The Photographer’s Eye, Part 1”. Those who haven’t must be approved for “Part 2” by the instructor and LACP. The course will include one field trip shooting assignment.
