This class introduces the young photographer to the basics of making images and camera use. Students will learn how to think and see like photographers, exploring the creative process of making an image. We will complete weekly photo assignments using digital cameras, from basic framing of the image to more advanced concepts in image creation. An overview of the evolution of photography will also be integrated into the class. Critique and analysis will be part of the course; talking about the photographs is an integral aspect of the photographic process. We will look at the images on a computer, with limited instruction in editing and printing software - this is not a digital printing class. Please bring your own camera.

Cornelia Hasenfuss of Peacham has been making images for more than 25 years. She trained at the Maine Photographic Workshops. Most recently, she taught at the Cardigan School in Canaan, NH and ran a high school AP program in Sandy, UT. Her experience includes teaching portfolio prep and reviews, large format photography, studio lighting, medium format camera use, basic camera use and all forms of darkroom skills from basis black and white silver printing to film development and alternative and historical printing processes. Her personal art focuses on landscape images, as well as collage techniques including sewing, papermaking, hand coating images and historical processes of photography.
