Intermediate Photography: New Landscapes

271E
Subject: 
ARTSTUDI

This course investigates notions of landscape photography by expanding upon its traditional, geography-based paradigm of pictorial beauty. Students explore how the perception and representation of landscapes relate to physical and cognitive mapping, as well as engagements with myth and memory, in order to visualize how we experience and imagine the spaces that extend around us. They develop technical processes that allow them to intervene in landscapes, such as altering their appearance within the camera in post-production, manipulating the construction of existing places, or building installations in public spaces. This is an intermediate course in photography, with an ongoing emphasis on operating manual camera settings (focus, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, color temp/ white balance). Students continue to work with Lightroom as a file management system, are introduced to Photoshop, and focus on the importance of photo editing/selection and sequencing. Prerequisite: ARTSTUDI 170 or ARTSTUDI 171 or ARTSTUDI 173E or equivalent.
