Course Description

Why is a picture “worth a thousand words?” Because great photographs tell stories. In doing so they make a connection, evoke and emotion, kindle a memory, show a relationship, and provoke a response in the viewer. But to tell a story with your photograph, you must have a strong concept of just what you want to say combined with strong composition. In this class, explore how to share your story through a single image as well as through sequences. You will learn how to harness the narrative power of photographs, from planning and previsualizing to selecting what not to include and sequencing. Learn about creating stories you can sell to magazines and to create books of your own like after you travel. For all experience levels using any digital camera.
