P4 Highlights

Project 4 continues to be a high point in the Intro Photo Classes. The first part of the semester is designed to bring everyone up to speed on controlling the camera and learning how to print. Now, we're beginning to take those skills and create more artistic and thoughtful photographs.

Learning to see light is the first step in this process. Everyone tends to do much better and make more interesting images because of this focus on light, whether it be observed or created. We see broader ranges of tones in black and white photographs that begin to pop.

Now, the idea is to begin to use all these skills and move toward personal meaning and concept in your work, which is ultimately the goal as you use the camera and print as artistic tools. Remember, they are the "means," and not the "end."
