Wichita Falls, TX, January 11, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Midwestern State University (MWSU) Continuing Education is offering three new photography courses this semester. The classes are Landscape Photography, Street Photography and Mobile Web Photography. The courses are taught by local photographer Jesús Manuel Mena Garza and are open to the public.
In Landscape Photography, students will learn about great photographers, their techniques and aesthetics. They will gain hands-on knowledge of cameras, films, filters, lighting, lenses, composition and artistic intent. Students in all three classes will take field trips practicing the skills learned in class. Landscape Photography starts on Jan. 15.
The upcoming Street Photography course offers students an opportunity to learn the art and history of visual storytelling – for a single editorial image, feature stories and books. Aspects of Street Photography will be incorporated into the course. Students will show and discuss their images in a seminar setting. Street Photography begins Jan. 16.
Your smartphone is more than just a snapshot device — it is a powerful creative tool that fits right in the palm of your hand. This spring semester, students will learn to maximize the photographic potential of their smart device in the new class Mobile Web Photography. Why stop with smart phones? Photographers can easily use an iPad, Android or similar device during this new MWSU class. Mobile Web Photography launches on Jan 17.
Garza taught photography at the prestigious Academy of Art University in San Francisco and the University of California at Riverside Extension. The instructor’s images have been published by the Princeton University Press, the Smithsonian Institution and were recently exhibited at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, D.C.
