Intermediate Photography: Studio Lighting

This course explores the lighting studio, digital editing software and digital color printing. Using the lighting studio as a basis for the course, students will explore assignments such as the constructed still life, studio portraiture and the photo tableau with digital cameras. Notions of the real and the ability to create rather than document the world will be central themes of discovery. We will also interrogate concepts of beauty and the historical role of the lighting studio in reinforcing stereotypes about gender and race. Ultimately students will conceptualize how the lighting studio can transform their means of creative production. Emphasis will be placed on independent problem solving, critical thinking, visual literacy and student initiated research.
