J210 Introduction to Photojournalism

Students will photograph a variety of events/stories to acquire a sense of the range of realities a photographer might encounter on assignment. Students will examine technical aspects of photography — composition, editing and presentation — and will work on weekly assignments that include news, features, sports and environmental portraits. They will also study the history of photojournalism to gain a greater appreciation of the canon. Each student will choose a documentary project as a final photo essay, which should exemplify the skills and concepts that were covered in class.
