F102 Winter 2019 GRC Photography
Tuesdays, 9:40–11:05, Jan. 22–Feb. 12
Instructor: Dan Feighery
Class limit: 12
This course is designed for those who attended the 2018 summer “GRC Photography” course. Through weekly assignments we will strive to capture the best possible photo while concentrating on content, arrangement, and exposure of whatever is in the picture space, before the application of any post-processing. Instruction will focus primarily on use of digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras. Attendees will be encouraged to use the manual rather than an automatic camera mode. Both technical and artistic intermediate level instruction will be adjusted to the needs of attendees. Class participants will capture at least 20 images each week, selecting their best four photos each week for individualized instructor comment followed by interactive classroom review. The assignment for discussion during the first class will be sent in advance to attendees.
