Photographing People, from Home to the Street 1W23

Age Group: 
Teens (17+), Adults

Are you interested in elevating the visual and conceptual standards of your photographs of people?  In this class we will learn how to photograph people in a variety of situations, and to transform these captured moments into universal truths that resonate.  By employing a new assignment each week, students will be encouraged to photograph in both new and familiar situations to capture a broad range of the human experience.

Limit 8 students


I took this class because I wanted to continue my studies; classes provide structure for me in my photographing endeavors.  Plus, I consider Robin Radin a fine teacher.  Some of my favorite aspects of this class were the nature of the weekly assignments; the room for close readings of student photographs; the size of the class; and the instructor's approach.  I was completely happy with the class!
