DESCRIPTION

Learn how the camera can be used in a foreign environment as an exciting tool of documentary record, cross-cultural understanding, artistic expression and self-discovery. After an introduction to the fundamentals of photography, both traditional and digital, your camera will be constantly trained on the city of Paris itself, its architecture, history, people, and rich culture. As you develop your technical, compositional and critical skills as a photographer you will create a portfolio of images that will both showcase and celebrate your whole unforgettable study abroad experience. Throughout the course you will be able to post your best work on the Campus website to record and display your experiences.

Your in-class workshops will develop your practical and theoretical skills, and your photographic trips throughout the streets, and squares of the city center will be complemented with a guided in-depth visit to different photo shows.

Throughout the course your instructor will frequently deliver critical reviews of your work, but you will also be actively involved in analyzing and evaluating your own work and the work of others in a collaborative atmosphere of constructive reflection and criticism. You'll have the opportunity to post your work on the course web site in order to record and display your experiences.

You may choose to work with traditional or digital photography. Digital cameras must have a minimum of 8 mega pixels. Traditional cameras must be able to be loaded with 35 mm films. The camera must be functioning, and particularly if old and unused for a long time, has to be reviewed professionally before you leave the U.S.

If you are enrolled in any other electives there may be the possibility of executing a photographic project as part of your work requirements for those courses.

Special Materials Required:
· A 35 mm DSLR (digital single lens reflex) camera, with a minimum of 8 megapixels, is required for this course. Your camera must have a manual mode and at least a 50 mm lens (or a zoom including the 50 mm focal length).
· A laptop computer and a USB key (2GB minimum) is required for all classroom sessions.
· Basic Photoshop or iPhoto programs to edit your photographs is required

Additional Cost:
You will be required to regularly print out some of your selected photographs for specified class critiques. This can be done close to the school at a nearby photolab. Estimated printing costs are approximately 50 USD for the semester.
