The Urban Landscape for Teens with Lee Corkett
Photo by Dottie Lopez
Los Angeles is a massive, sprawling metropolis housing neighborhoods and communities of all shapes and sizes. There are remote woodsy enclaves, suburban tree-lined neighborhoods and concrete laden areas. In this class, students will take advantage of this melting pot of environments and turn their cameras on their neighborhoods in an effort to document their communities.
On Monday, students will meet at LACP to talk about what urban landscape means, go over general camera information and discuss various photo techniques. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, students will meet in predetermined locations in Hollywood and Downtown Los Angeles to practice capturing the essence of Los Angeles’ diverse landscapes. Students will complete shooting assignments outside of class in an effort to build a strong body of work that best tells the visual story of the urban landscape in which they reside. Class time will be devoted to reviewing and critiquing students images. Time will also be devoted to examining the work of various acclaimed photographers and images they made in the cities they call home.
The class will culminate with each student presenting his or her project. A digital Single Lens Reflex (SLR) camera is recommended for this class; however, film cameras and point & shoot cameras will be supported as well.
