Description:

Pictures are supposedly worth 1000 words, but how do we build those photographs into a story? How do we connect images to craft complex narrative? How are images used to mislead? In this course, we’ll explore how photographs are used to tell a wide range of stories and practice telling our own stories with photographs. We will cover some history and theory of photography and photojournalism, basic camera operation, and technical considerations, along with post-processing as we build a solid foundation for creating photographs and telling stories.
