    • Process
      • Process is hard to break down in photography because it happens so fast
      • It could be called luck, but photographers call it intuition and experience
      • we are searching for a way to order our photos from what is available with reactive photography
      • We will be looking at reactive photography
    • Snapshot Aesthetic
      • Informal composition
      • Considered “happy accidents” or nontraditional technique and framing
        • Flare
        • Odd camera angles
        • Camera shake
        • Sharp shadows
        • Out of focus
        • Eyes closed
        • Apparently unposed
        • Poor framing
      • Willful disregard for the principles of composition that is justified by calling itself conceptual
      • This created a rift between photography and fine art photography
    • Snapshot Aesthetic
      • Trend in fine art photography from about 1963
      • Features banal everyday subject matter and often there is no link between photographs
      • Well known photographers include:
        • Nan Goldin, Wolfgang Tillmans, Martin Parr, William Eggleston, Terry Richardson, Lee Freidlanderx
      • "Photography is not about the thing photographed. It is about how that thing looks photographed."
        • Garry Winogrand
    • Lee Friedlander
    • Nan Goldin
    • Examples in Commercial Photography
    • American Apparel
    • Dr. Martens
    • The Search For Order
      • Creating order in photography is harder b/c everything in front of the lens is recorded
      • Through organization, our conceptions and emotions become concrete and communicable
        • Cartier-Bresson
      • What about photography that challenges the norms we have studied up to now?
    • search for order
    • order
    • Hunting
      • “ As a photographer, you are hunting for a photograph that meets your needs yet is drawn from a fluid, evolving set of events.” (photojournalism)
      • “ I prowled the streets all day, feeling very strung up and ready to pounce, determined to trap life-to preserve life in the act of living. Above all, I craved to seize, in the confines one single photograph, the whole essence of some situation that was in the process of unrolling itself before my eyes.”
        • Henri Cartier-Bresson
    • Reaction
      • Areas of preparation
        • Camera handling
        • Observation
