High-Impact Storytelling with Photography

Characteristics Of This Class:

Harness the power of still photography to tell engaging stories - whether you're using the latest DSLR or the simplest point-and-shoot. A narrative told in a series of varied, cohesive photos can be a beautiful, dynamic way to document a trip, special event, or even your family over time.

In this workshop, you'll also be introduced to the process and key elements for executing successful visual storytelling. You'll learn how to prepare for and capture just the right moments, so you have the photos you need to deliver your story in a powerful, cohesive presentation.

This workshop will cover:

  • Pre-visualization and pre-production
  • Tips for shooting in the field
  • Capturing both information and emotion
  • Finding the right shots to tell your story
  • Editing for maximum impact
  • Presentation options - single pages, books, and multimedia

Who Should Take This:

Photographers who want to create powerful narratives with a series of images. You should take the Hands-On Introduction to Digital Photography first if you're not fully comfortable with your camera.
