Odyssey: Finding your Vision in Black and White: What the Masters Can Teach Us

This course will review and discuss the work of such masters as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Arnold Newman, Helmut Newton, Elliot Erwitt, Diane Arbus, Jim Marshall, Herman Leonard, and Michael Kenna, as we wrestle with the question: What makes a great black and white photograph? Focusing on tone, texture, form, point of view, narrative and visual metaphor, we'll identify the elements that comprise a fine art image, and we'll learn how to employ these elements in our own photography, both in capture and post-capture. Students will also be encouraged (but not required) to bring images to class for review and discussion. This course is for beginners and advanced alike, and will include some material from the preview class given in Spring 2013.
