Class description

The Develop! course is a course that is designed for students who want to explore, capture, and share their transition to the UW through photographs. The course will incorporate practical lessons on technique and image editing. These activities will be facilitated and enhanced by discussions and reflections on each studentís college transition. Course work will include weekly shooting assignments as well as participation in peer critiques and self-evaluations. At the end of the quarter, Develop! will culminate in a public exhibition of selected images from each student. Photography experience is not required, and digital SLRs will be available on loan for students in the seminar. The primary purpose of Develop! is to give students an opportunity to use photography as a vehicle to uniquely capture, document, and convey the intangible changes that will occur during their respective transitional experiences. If you are seeking a class that offers you a small community, a chance to document your transition and gives you practical photography curriculum, then Develop! may be for you.
