Finally, a book for the teachers! Just because you got the job doesn't mean you have the background. Educators get up in front of the class and don't always have the answers or the skills to reach their photography students. The camera isn't everything! Teaching Photography is aimed at assisting educators to help students expand their knowledge and abilities in the techniques, the aesthetics, and the way photography fits into a greater world of knowledge, by providing ideas for inspiring conversations and critiques, as well as insightful pointers regarding the learner's perspective in this new world. Teaching Photography approaches the many aspects of photographic education from a point of view that stresses the how and why of the education and not the technique to be taught.
