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 the momentous and 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 photography such as formal composition, narrative elements, aperture, shutter speed, power of color, the dramatics of black/white, and more. The photographs taken in the course may be used for the school newspaper.
