ONLINE: Are you creating documentary photos, telling a family story or organizing photos from a wedding or family gathering? This highly interactive course will teach you how to improve your photos by adding narrative elements. The storytelling techniques can add a compelling snap to the photo-sharing experience. We will explore how narrative photography techniques have been used in photo genres such as documentary, photo essays and photojournalism. Then you can apply these techniques to organizing travel photos, event photos or even nature photos to make sharing them more exciting. By engaging in taking photos, doing group critiques and possibly going on an optional group field trip, we can have fun and improve our photography. Students will take photographs after each session using a particular storytelling technique either on their own or with the instructor and other students. In the following session, we will share the work and talk about what sequencing adds to a set of images. | Facilitated discussion, Active Skill Learning.
