Online Learning Class via Zoom

Los Angeles is a large sprawling metropolis with lots of neighborhoods and communities of all shapes and sizes. There are remote woodsy enclaves, suburban tree-lined neighborhoods and concrete laden areas. In this class, students will take advantage of their own environments and turn their cameras on their neighborhoods in an effort to document their communities and architecture. Photography is a tool for seeing and sharing stories. With the Covid-19 pandemic, we’ve been spending more time at home and in our neighborhoods. What have we learned about the places where we live, and how can we see them with fresh eyes?

Students will meet daily over Zoom to discuss urban landscape photography, go over general camera information and discuss various photo techniques. Students will complete shooting assignments outside of class in an effort to build a strong body of work that best tells the visual story of the neighborhood landscape in which they reside. Class time will be devoted to reviewing student images and examining the work of various acclaimed photographers and images they made in the cities they call home.

The class will culminate with each student presenting his or her project.

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.

Kat Bawden ( is a photographer and teaching artist whose work explores the duality of our internal and external lives. Her work has appeared in The Los Angeles Times, The Huffington Post, NME, and F-Stop Magazine, among other publications, and has been exhibited across the country. She was born and raised in the Chicago area but now calls Los Angeles home. Before a career in art, Kat was a community organizer and teacher.
