Do you enjoy making or looking at documentary photography? This course will guide students to create images that document, report and tell stories about the everyday world around them. Students will learn how to effectively use photography to create visually engaging images. Discussions will include reviewing movies and images from classic masters, their skills and motivation, intense and encouraging critiques, and weekly assignments that will take you out into the streets and out of your comfort zone. In this course, we will guide students to become insightful photographers capable of identifying the right moment to make a coherent and intentional photograph.

As usual in PhotoUno, there will be class exercises with the guidance of the instructor.

Students will work on a series of their own choice that will be presented as a Photography Exhibition at PhotoUno.
