PHOTOJOURNALISM WITH YOUR PHONE!
Level: Teens Beginners Plus and Intermediate
Teens Photojournalism introduces students to visual storytelling as observation, statement or reaction and the understanding of the process involved in creating a photo story. Over the course of four days students will learn the technical and be introduced to the creative side of storytelling, using it as a vehicle to establish a clear visual narrative.
Expanding from the visual storytelling format there will be lessons in spotting photographic opportunities, storyboard preparation, fly on the wall techniques, winning the subject’s trust, filming the story, editing and presenting for audience. Steve will be referencing much of his own work so students will receive a first person account of the process.
This course is designed for the Teen showing confidence in operating a camera and looking for practice in using those skills creatively and with focus. Our Teens Photojournalism course is part of our developing multimedia series which introduces students to the practice of expressing themselves through storytelling.
