Typical photography courses often focus on the technicalities of the photograph. Often, these become point and shoot exercises. Photography: Lessons from Rembrandt will take participants through proven techniques used by painters over the past several centuries to put creativity back into the picture. Students will go through exercises to create photographs that engage the viewer while promoting insightful commentary and dialogue, and traditional composition.
