This course teaches the
principal technical aspects of photography and introduces the narrative concept of
a group of images. The objective is to show
photography mainly as a tool of expressing yourself,
allowing the photographer to conceive and tell
stories through images. The student will be
encouraged to experiment, investigate and follow
his/her instinct in order to create his/her own
images and identify the relation between images and
In regards to the technique, the
objective is to learn and dominate the student’s own
camera (analogical or digital), understanding its
virtues and defects to obtain the wanted results.
The course covers the basic operation of the reflex
or compact cameras (35 mm) and includes;
Diaphragm. Field depth.
Distinguished focuses. Shutter speed (movement

understanding of photography. Discussions and
critiques will focus on finding the best means for
communicating a set of ideas photographically

The contact sheet or small print will
form a structure for seeing by mapping the evolution
of perception through the course. Although the
primary concern will be thematic and aesthetic, the
course will cover technical weaknesses such as film
choice, exposure, flash versus available light,
camera placement, camera/subject motion, use of
space, frame edges, selective focus, etc.
Slide shows and/or book reviews will
provide an overview of the history of photography as
well as references for further exploration.
If you want to pack in a lot of learning instead of
having a relaxed placement, you can combine your
photography course with another placement such as
Spanish or teaching. Your
