LENS 301 Lens Based Media Workshop

3 credits 90.0 hours
300 level undergraduate course

Students explore the integration of photographic and cinematic practices through structured and personal assignments to develop technical, aesthetic, and conceptual mastery of the media associated with the lens. Students will examine notions of sequencing, with emphasis on investigating the transition from still to moving images and back again, and they will learn to synthesize film and photographic techniques to create innovative hybrid work. Analysis and study of contemporary lens-based practices as well as trends that traverse the traditional boundaries between photography and film will take place through reading, writing, and discussion with attention to current screenings and exhibitions.
