Title: Photojournalism

Description: Photojournalism is a form of visual communication that documents the emotions, drama, suspense, and exhilaration of real-life events and people for diverse media outlets, including print and electronic media. As artists and storytellers, photojournalists create images that document our culture. These images capture both the momentous and the everyday circumstances of contemporary life and society. This course will teach students to understand photography as a form of visual communication, as they address aspects of photograph such as formal composition, narrative elements, aperture, shutter speed, power of color, dramatics of black/white, and more. The photographs taken in the course may be used for the school newspaper. DSLR camera is required.
