OCS: Photography Workshop

Learn tips and tricks and organizational ways to make, keep, and create the best photos possible.

Thursday, May 10th, 2012
6:00 – 7:30 pm / IdeaLab - Weitz 026
Carleton students take a lot of photographs while they are studying off campus and they look to their photographs to record and to communicate their experiences abroad. Whether the photographs are for personal use, shared informally with family and friends, or shared more formally with the Carleton campus, the photos are meant to speak in some way to the experience of studying off campus. In some cases, photographs are personal momentos; in others, they are direct class 'assignments' or products of the teaching environment of the course. In certain classes, photography is taught intensively; in others not at all. This workshop will start to answer these questions: What makes a good quality photograph? What can a novice photographer do to improve the quality of their photographs? How should a student think about their ethical responsibilities in relation to the host culture? With: Photographer, Tucker MacNeill Visual Resource Curator and organizational whiz, Heidi Eyestone CAMS professor and gifted artist, Laska Jimsen
