Plus, it will help "improve your critical understanding of the photographic self portrait"
Is one of your New Year’s resolutions to improve your selfie game? Hopefully not! But if it is, you should consider heading to the U.K. to take a new course dedicated solely to the art of the selfie.
City Lit, an adult-education college in London, is now offering a photography class called “The art of self portraiture.” The month-long course, which begins in March, is a “theory/practice introduction to photographic self-portraiture; it is conceived for students to improve their critical understanding of the photographic self-portrait, as well as a platform to develop ideas towards the creation of a coherent body of work.”
So in other words, yes, it’s a selfie class — but it’s not for basic iPhone pics. Students must come equipped with their own SLR cameras and knowledge of basic photography principles. Besides taking selfies, students will also need to participate in lectures, presentations, seminars, discussions and group work. It costs £132, or about $200.
Get those duck faces ready, everybody.
