Does documentary photography have the power to help create social change and inspire people to act? YES! This online course explores the process of creating meaningful work and the ways it can be used for advocacy to communicate issues of contemporary social significance. We will look at the many ways one can approach a story or documentary project, both long term and short, and discuss ways of coming up with story ideas, researching, and the most important part – executing the project and getting the work exposed. A Guest Speaker will join this course for one session. This course is limited to 8 students.

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.

Note: All camera formats are welcome.

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.
