E61119 Abstract Digital Photography, Wednesdays, 1 - 4 pm
Instructor: Carl Beihl
Skill level: ALL

Abstract photography creates mood and/or feeling without portraying recognizable objects or scenes. In this class, you will experiment with ways to carry photography beyond realism by playing with scale, removing contextual information and photographing through water or other clear materials. You will explore shadow, blurring techniques and exposure times in order to find your own personal expression and design aesthetic. Color, contrast and composition will be examined through weekly assignments and in-class reviews. Bring a digital camera and examples of your work to the first class.
