This class is an advanced study of photography that focuses on photography as an art form. We will explore more "alternative" methods of darkroom and digital photography to examine the true art of the photographic medium
For this project all you need is a camera and 20-30 minutes to take a walk! You will be photographing everything you see on your walk in a somewhat abstract manner with the intention of later incorporating it into a grid in Photoshop. Think about textures and color and abstraction—think about feeling and the way you can convey what you experience on your walk rather than what you see with your eyes.
Photograph 50 frames (at least) on your 20-minute photo walk. Consider the colors, textures, and interesting details around you. Remember not to focus on getting one great image, but amass a collection of images that will work well together—maybe the connection between these images is color, or texture, or distance from the subject. You will be passing in one final deconstructed landscape.
• Just take a walk. Don't think too much about your location to start, just bring your camera along with you
• Think about breaking your location down into sections (sky/trees, middle ground/tree bark, ground or what's at your feet) and photograph the interesting pieces of those sections
• Look closely at your surroundings and photograph each image in a intentional way by removing unnecessary objects and extraneous information
