Color: Theory and Symbolism

This 4-week long class is intended to give all levels of photographers a firm understanding of color theory and its applications in image making. Topics included in the class are the color wheel; color schemes (monochromatic, analogous, complementary, etc.); warm and cool colors; muted and saturated colors; and symbolic, personal and cultural uses of color. Students will be exploring color primarily through shooting assignments that will be critiqued with digital projection, but may also bring in prints for critique.
