In this course, you will use your understanding of camera and lens functions, lighting, editing, style, and expression to create a photography project that is representative of your specific interests and skills. You will first decide what the purpose of your project is, what your portfolio will include, and who your audience is. You will then go into the field to take photographs, assess them, and return to the field to take them again. You will select your best photos and write the wall mount descriptions for each one. You will create an action plan for how you will display your photography project. Finally, you will critique the photography projects of your peers while receiving a critique of your own project to see how your and your classmates’ visions and purposes were interpreted. By the end of this course, you will have created a photographic project that demonstrates your skills and which can stand on its own as a portfolio, exhibition, job, or assignment.
Expect to spend 14-19 hours to complete this course.
