We will study photography and the camera’s fundamental operations that will enable us to make pictures in the city of Paris. The city’s rich history is reflected throughout the course-in our wanderings on foot to make photographs-through its streets, gardens, parks, public monuments and living spaces. The city’s formidable artistic past includes photography. It served as the site of the medium’s invention and announcement by Daguerre, and as the city whose great photographic traditions were established by Eugene Atget, Cartier-Bresson and others. Our travels will include some of the world’s great museums of art and photography, and we will meet photographers who speak of their specialty and who currently reside in Paris. Our final sessions in the course include seeing the results of our images, adjusted with lessons from Adobe Photoshop gathered throughout the course, and resulting in high quality Epson inkjet prints.
