General Outline of a Lesson Plan for each Weekly Session
Each week you will be introduced to a new theme to work on based on a particular landscape photographic genre. Each session will consist of mainly three parts:
i) Looking at a different landscape photographic genre based on images by both classic and contemporary photographers. You will be engaging in a critical discussion about them and reflecting on questions about what compositional approach it has been used, what the intentions of the photographer might be, what the images mean to you based on your own interpretation and any other questions that might be generated by you.
ii) Looking at each other’s photographs, commenting on them, suggesting new ideas, reflecting on your creative process and articulating it into your own words. This discussion will be the core of each session, as it will provide you with the opportunity to extract ideas from your own work, discuss the process you followed and make decisions for your future explorations on the weekly projects to follow. At the same time, I will be answering your questions, helping you to clarify your ideas and giving you suggestions and guidance for further experimentation.
iii) Summing up the main ideas, which were discussed during the previous parts and discussing the nature of your homework. This will be based on a fixed theme for everyone suggested by myself or on a theme that you will suggest and agree to work on or on individual themes that each one of you might choose.
After the end of each session I will be sending you e-handouts by email
