Subject matter and interpretation are the keys to this kind of photography that aims at capturing the essentials of the human condition in a wide range of contexts. Discuss major photojournalists who worked in war zones, rural settings and the urban world to document the lives around them. If you know your camera’s basic settings you are prepared for realizing pictures that document moments of reality that speak to a broad audience. This assignment-driven class will concentrate on projects of increasing scope, starting with pictures that capture a single incident and leading up to complete series of picture stories. A minimum of equipment is required.

OWEN BIDDLE has been taking pictures for thirty-five years and teaching photography for about thirty years. One thing he loves about teaching is watching his students' unique vision and creativity unfold as they master the how-to's of the camera. He loves challenging his students to see the camera as a tool for creating meaningful images. He also loves studying the masters of photography, and strives to inspire his students to use the lessons that can be learned from those who came before us, both in photography and in art, in general. Owen reports that the whole class has a lot of fun together, following and developing their passion for this wonderful media.
