In addition to Alternative Photography, I taught two other classes: Funography and The Photographic Series. Funography demonstrated simple techniques for manipulating images as they are being shot (versus in post-processing), while The Photographic Series illustrated the rationale for sequencing photographs in order to strengthen an idea or storytelling. For the Funography class, the students experimented with using flashlights, prisms, magnifying glasses, sunglass lenses, colored gels, paper bags, plastic cups, and more to create photographic effects. In The Photographic Series, students created a ten-image series for each of the following, documentary series, thematic series, and serial imagery series. Historic and contemporary precedents were shown to both classes.

It was a monumental task to accomplish everything in only a week, but we did it!
