SUMMER PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE
June 7th – 27th (3 weeks) Digital Imaging
July 2nd-23rd (3 weeks) Black and White Photography
An intensive group studio class with discussions, lectures and specially-designed field trips and outdoors work. Students will also be expected to shoot materials and manipulate them in the digital lab outside of class time in preparation for the regularly scheduled group critiques. Progress will be monitored via a mid-program critique, individual teacher-student meetings and a final group critique at the end of the course. The summer schedule will include visits to five islands, exploration of sites and differing landscapes, the villages and it’s peoples. Some significant course work will revolve around visits to the classical sites on Paros, Delos and Naxos; the island museums; and the spectacular environment of Thira, with its volcanic formations and unique views.
Students will explore the history and craft of photography using the beautiful and historic backdrop of Paros and other Cycladic islands as inspiration. The course will examine such topics as landscape, portraiture and digital techniques and is structured to take full advantage of the experience of being in the Cyclades. Students who desire to work in analog photography in June or digital in July, admission is by request. 3 credits.
