Learn to capture the "decisive moment" of your friends and family. By taking the mystery out of your cameras settings - ISO, Shutter, and Aperature - you will learn to better capture light, posing, and composition. Students will work with instructor and photographer Jennifer Glass in locations both inside and outside of the museum. A digital camera (not a cell phone camera) is recommended for optimum results. Open to all levels.

Offered in conjunction with the exhibition Touching Strangers: Photographs by Richard Renaldi on view March 19 – May 15, 2016 at the Foosaner Art Museum. Organized by Aperture Foundation, New York. Curator: Ann Pallesen, Gallery Director, Photographic Center Northwest, Seattle. The traveling exhibition Touching Strangers was made possible, in part, with the support of the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation.

Instructor Bio

A southern portrait photographer whose range has blossomed under the influences of 19th century American photographers Edward Steichen and Alfred Steiglitz, as well as the Dutch Golden Age artist Johannes Vermeer and 16th century Spanish Baroque master Diego Velazquez, Glass incorporates portraits, her vintage clothing collection and botanicals to bring alive the emotions in her work. Glass' work is rooted in traditional film processes. She says that by using photography's earliest processes from the 1800's such as the salt print and cyanotype, she captures the earthly beauty of her surroundings. These processes include a technique of coating sheets of paper or fabrics with various silver salts and exposing them in the sunlight with her chosen collected objects. "At the end of the day, no matter what or who it is, what remains is an invisible emanation, an aura." says the artist.

Glass began creating art at a very early age and was accepted into the National Art Honor Society at age 15. She earned a bachelors degree in Social and Political Science from Florida State University and studied photography at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale and with well-known photographers including Debbie Fleming Caffery, and Mary Ellen Mark.
