In this course, students explore techniques for creative storytelling: how to develop a strong narrative and build sequenced stories; how adding non-photography elements can enrich the overall message; and how a story can be told in different ways on different platforms (web-based, book-form, installation or a gallery space). Students analyze the story structure of projects by other photographers and examine the methods and tools they use for creative storytelling, including adding text, drawings, archival and “found” photos, and more. Through weekly critique, exercises, and discussion, students expand and deepen their photography practice and develop their own visual voice. This course is for students interested in documentary photography, multimedia, and conceptual visual storytelling approaches.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Intermediate: You are familiar with a camera, whether film or digital. You understand aperture, shutter speed, exposure, white balance, histograms, and how to control focus. You are comfortable editing and processing your images. You may want to learn how to utilize your camera in a more thoughtful and articulate way, or learn more about lighting or how to utilize theoretical concepts in relation to your portfolio of work.

Courses are subject to minimum enrollment. Please register early, within five days of the start-date, to reduce the likelihood of course cancellation and to ensure you receive all course-related materials in time to prepare for class.
