ONLINE: This course will teach you how to improve your photo presentations to make them more engaging and interesting, whether you are creating a documentary project, telling a family story or putting together photos from a wedding or family gathering. Students will be asked to take photographs in between each session and then be prepared to present their work. We'll use the tools and techniques of narrative structure and storytelling to make your photo sequences more compelling. We will explore how narrative photography techniques have been used in photo genres such as documentary photography, photo essay and photojournalism. You can apply these techniques to any photo sequence, organizing your travel photos, event photos or even nature photos to make sharing them more exciting for you and your audience. | Facilitated discussion, Active Skill Learning.
