Brief Biographical Sketch:

Labib Tazwar Rahman is an aspiring physicist who uses photography as a tool on a day-to-day basis to tell stories about everyday people and of galaxies far, far away.

He has recently moved to Stanford University from Bangladesh, where he opened an organization called InclusionX to integrate people with learning disabilities into the society through uniquely designed programs in CS and arts.

Labib has spent his life debating, building robots, and trying to understand the nuances of the lives of people around him.

He spends too much time in museums and too little in his fashion, so don't be surprised if you find someone in your class all suited up.

Because that won't be him.

As a beginner in the photography learning process, you'll be exposed to different photography styles and basic concepts like framing, lighting, exposure, aperture, and shutter speed, and how you can tweak all those knobs to crank out some amazing photos. After discussing the basics of photography and taking some practice shots indoors, we're going to go on a walking field trip around Stanford's breathtaking campus to take some awesome shots of your own to bring back with you. Whether you're interested in portrait, nature, still-life, abstract, black-and-white, landscape, or wildlife photography, or just want to explore, there's a place for you in this class! Cameras will be provided, but if you have your own DSLR camera from home, PLEASE bring it with you!! That way, you'll have practice with the camera you have regular access to, which is a huge bonus and makes it easier to take photos at home again next time.
