Course Description

This is a hands-on course where, as a group, we will explore several different forms of storytelling using photographs. Students will be introduced to topics and develop their own examples of single images that express an emotion or idea, a photo essay, and a photo journalism project. In addition, we will examine how storytelling applies to activities such as product marketing and process illustration. We'll also look at different types of story arcs and discuss how to apply them to our photographic work. Students will be asked to shoot and edit photos related to the topic of the week to share and discuss with the class. At the end of the course, we hope to share the work done by students in an online gallery for members of the OLLI community to view. | Facilitated discussion.

Section Notes
Please note: Students must have a digital camera or a smartphone and be familiar with using it. In addition, though not required, access to and experience using some type of photo-editing software is encouraged. We will not be teaching how to use these tools. Students will be uploading pictures for projects to be shared with the class, so experience using a service like Dropbox is helpful.
