Fundamentals of Photography with Kristin Taylor, Curator of Academic Programs and Collections
 

Let’s start with the basics! In this discussion, we will analyze artworks that demonstrate a range of techniques including use of vantage point, framing, lighting, and depth of field. This selection will also introduce viewers to a variety of traditions, including portraiture and street photography. Join us online as we dig into some of the fundamental principles artists employ to create their images with works by Harry Callahan, Roy DeCarava, Barbara Probst, Clarissa Bonet, and Berenice Abbott, among others.
