Class Description:  Participants will learn how to use the medium of photography to construct portraits of themselves and their class mates. The class should serve as a basic introduction to photography and its creative potential to create fictional, constructed portraits. Participants will be actively engaged in the making of their images and as a result will receive a digital copy of their best photograph.
