Free Photo Class Phonar Now Underway

Phonar, the free and open undergraduate photo class we wrote about a couple months ago, is now underway. While the physical class can only be attended by students at Coventry University, the general public can take part through the assignments and recorded materials shared through the website. Here’s the first assignment that’s due on October 13th:

Garner a portfolio of 8-10 images from different photographers whose work inspires you. Choose carefully, as though your edit was going to appear as a spread in a printed magazine, you may choose to lay them out as such if you wish, with attention to scale, pace and flow etc.

The portfolio must directly address a theme of your choosing – it could be a personal theme or a topical one, the choice is yours.

Participating is a great way of getting a taste of what taking an undergraduate photography course is like.

    Free school? I’m in. Just got my first 2 images in for the assignment, spending this weekend finalizing.

    I’ve already been to photoschool here, but it’s fun to have assignments to follow and such, so i’ll be including myself in this class. Thanks for the heads up Mr. Zhang!
