This class is for those experienced and knowledgeable enough to advance their skills from simply "taking" photos to "making" them.

Jennifer Gioffre is a technology-driven fine art photographer who teaches digital photography workshops and manages the photography facilities for the College of Architecture, Art, and Planning. She will be joined by her colleague David Todd, who earned his BFA in photography in 2006 and who returned to campus in 2012 as a visiting scholar. They will teach us greater manual camera control and the art of pre-visualizing images we wish to create.

Inspiration for this process will come through hands-on shooting sessions and in-depth group discussions exploring the major visual and historic photographic themes: abstraction, landscape, portraiture, and still life. Materials fee (in addition to program fee): $40.
