What is the course about?

In GDCV1115, students will be introduced to early technologies of seeing from the camera obscura all the way through to Flickr, together with concepts and ideas of light, or reproduction and circulation of imagery, and the techniques used to produce particular effects and emotional responses. The various ways of photographic production enable students to understand not only the making process but to express their own thoughts in viewing the objective world. The course will include workshops in experimental photo-practice, e.g., using mobile phone cameras to create artistic imagery. The assessable output (photographs, interpretative texts) will be presented in an exhibition.

What do the students say about this course?

每堂導師除了教授攝影技巧風格,還會讓同學實踐。走出課室,用自己的相機影出獨特風格的照相。這不是死板的課堂,每一位同學都可以成為攝影大師,影出屬於自己的照片。
