Welcome to the art docent class!
On our first photography class, we talked about ourselves and we were given the assignment of taking a series of photos with a common theme. Five photos were to be taken and to be presented in our next class.
The second time we met, we presented the photos and we discussed the themes and subjects of our photography’s. We learned about the following photographers: Mary Ellen Mark, Vivian Maier, Bruce Gilden, Steve McCurry, Joel Meyerowitz, and about the World Press Photo Organization, photo of the year. These were all in the style of street photography. It is important for a next generation of docents to learn about the different styles of photography. This moved us to our next assignment, documentary type photography. For the fourth day we were to take pictures of one person and their life for 5 days.
