We all have a story to tell. Photos can express that story in a way we cannot always convey with words. The purpose of this workshop is for students to learn skills necessary to use photography in a creative, technically proficient manner and incorporates hands-on activities that will allow students to think, create, express and explore concepts for storytelling and photo essays. This workshop is about developing personal visions and become a storyteller, not how to use a digital camera. Students will learn the essential concepts to produce and complete a personal photo essay/story for various intended outcomes whether for personal, educational or professional purposes. Some of the techniques students will learn are “Learning to See” concepts and exploration of photographic vision; visual storytelling planning; creativity; viewing and framing photographs; composition concepts; and visual variety for storytelling. There is a supply list which includes whatever camera device you have-from DSLRs to Smartphones.
