Riverside, CA, September 01, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- California photographer Jesús Manuel Mena Garza will illuminate his and other documentary photographers works in a new class offered at the University of California at Riverside. The 2007 Fall course is simply titled, Documentary Photography and is scheduled for Sept. 18 through Nov. 6, 2007.
Garza explained, “The new class will give students an opportunity to explore how photography interprets our society. As a photographer, I feel it is important to capture a vanishing America before it inevitably disappears. The beauty of our communities and people should be immortalized on photographic paper.”
Students in the course will learn the art of visual storytelling — whether for a single editorial image, for feature stories or books or for creating a personal record of things observed. Students will explore ways to execute photos through a range of styles and subjects and create a story line from concept to final print.
The class will inform students on diverse processes. Students will learn to take better images with strong, sensitive and effective visual qualities by producing several themed projects. These same projects can work as a portfolio. Those interested in the new class can go to the www.extension.ucr.edu for more information or contact Veronica Hernandez at email@example.com.
