How to Put a Great Photo Into Words

  Start Date November 12
  Time 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm
  Instructor Mark Chen

Class meets two Sundays: November 12th & 19th, from 3:30—5:30 pm

In order to become a professional photographer, curator or collector, one needs to cultivate an important skill — how to talk about photography. Simply clicking a “like” button won't cut it in the art world, you must learn to articulate why you like a photo. How do the compositional elements in a photo influence the content? What makes an image thought-provoking?

Being able to read and communicate about photography is an essential tool in the art world and writing a statement about your work is a necessity. In How to Put a Great Photo Into Words, your instructor will teach you the vocabulary and “entry points” necessary to talk about photographs, whether you created the work or someone else did.
