Changing Tools, Changing Photography: A Critic’s Look at How Technology Has Changed What We Photograph

Mike Sandman

Remote Meeting (See Instructions/Get Zoom Link Emailed)


Making a photograph that has impact requires both art and science.  We’ll consider how the art of photography has co-evolved with technology, and where photography is headed.  Although we’ll look at some of the technical aspects of photography, we won’t be talking about how to take photographs, but rather about how to see them.   And we’ll look at some paintings as a departure point for looking at photographs, since there are many similarities between the two art forms.
