CSPH 348 The Extended Portrait 2 credits Jennifer Wright $820

Section A Meets 9/8/2014 to 12/15/2014 on Monday from 6:30 PM to 10:00 PM.

A photographic portrait balances multiple perspectives: self-presentation of the subject, public perception, and the unique impression of the artist. This course will approach technical and conceptual issues of portraiture in the studio as well as in the context of dynamic, real-world environments. Photographers will develop studio and on-location lighting techniques, as well as camera and post-processing skills specific to portraiture. We will also develop more personal skills including how we interact with our subjects and how we decide to represent them in photographs. Prerequisite: Intermediate black and white or digital photography or equivalent experience. Note: Students can choose to work in either digital or black and white photography. No class on October 20.
