WEEK ONE: The basics of iPhoneography, and the concept of documentary style photography and how it complements the role of mothers.
WEEK TWO: The focus will shift to you as an individual, which can often be forgotten in your mothering role. Throughout this week you’ll work on capturing images that represent you as an individual on many different levels. Discussions will focus on the importance of capturing these types of images and the need for them to be shared and passed on to loved ones.
WEEK THREE: You’ll apply a documentary photography approach into your everyday life, including time at home and time out and about. Photo assignments will force you to think on your feet as you practice capturing beautiful memories and everyday moments.
All participation and interaction for this class will take place in a private online forum. (Registered students will receive instructions on how to access the forum a few days before class begins.)
On the first Monday of class, Soud will share Lesson 1 in the forum and e-mail it to every student. She will be available during the week to answer questions and facilitate discussions in the forum as you read and work through your lessons.
Homework will be due on Sunday and critiques/reviews will take place the following Monday. Each week will follow the same pattern.
The beauty of this class and every other class at DEFINE is that you can read, practice, and participate throughout the week whenever it is convenient for you- from any timezone, anywhere you have Internet access, at any time of day. Most students spend 3-5 hours per week “in class.
