Students in a recent online photography course offered through the Center for Documentary Studies Continuing Education program, “The Enduring Image: Defining Your Personal Style and Vision,” created a twelve- to twenty-image portfolio that embodies the student’s singular vision. Scroll down for a slideshow of selected images.

Instructor Bryce Lankard writes: “The goal of the course is to help photographers define their signature style and bring a personal vision to their projects. Style can be expressed through subject choice, artistic technique, or conceptual/presentational methods that make a photographer’s work easily identifiable and unique. These are the qualities that separate an enduring image from a forgettable snapshot. This presents different challenges for each student during the course of the class. Some shoot fresh material. Some edit existing work. Others are most helped by crafting a coherent statement of purpose, which can help organize and guide the evolution of an ongoing project.”
