Why do some photographs intrigue us more than others? In this program, students are introduced to the science and art behind this extremely popular form of visual communication. Students explore what makes an interesting photograph by viewing the works of contemporary and historical photographers in the museum’s collection. Participants first discover how focus, framing, timing, point of view, and subject matter can influence meaning in a photograph and then lay the foundation for their own creative view through the camera.
A meeting link will be emailed to registered participants approximately one hour prior to the start of the program. Staff will be available for help with connecting to Zoom and technical issues beginning 15 minutes prior to the program. You will need a device with audio and/or video and an internet connection to join.
