This course will explore the rich culture of Athens, Greece through the creation of a body of photographic work that includes portraits, architecture, and landscape images. Using a digital, single lens reflex camera, students will learn how to use both available and artificial light to create compelling photographs that examine the rich heritage and artistic significance of this world class city. As an introduction, examples of 19th and 20th century photography will be presented as well as a review of digital camera operation, photographic technique, and lens selection based on subject interpretation and lighting conditions. Weekly field trips and critiques will help guide students through the technical and aesthetic decisions that have to be made to create a cohesive body of work. The finished portfolio for each participant will include twenty four images and a daily journal documenting their work and personal experiences.
Prerequisite: A digital, single lens reflex camera, basic understanding of digital camera operation, and a laptop with either Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Lightroom software.
At least two optional weekend excursions outside of Athens with a visiting professor include a visit to Delphi, the island of Hydra and others TBA.
