Photojournalism uses images in order to tell a news story. In this class, campers will approach their photographs with the goal of communicating a story to the viewer. At the beginning of the summer, all campers will learn basic digital photography techniques, including: a review of the functions and settings of a digital camera, how to transfer photos to a computer and optimization of images in Adobe Photoshop for printing. Campers will then focus on learning to use their photography skills to communicate a story to the viewer purely through images. Some of the topics the class may cover include: narrative, objectivity, what makes an image have impact, and the photo essay. Campers will be encouraged to take pictures of events at CAAP as well as outside of camp. The class will work in conjunction with the OTT, and campers may take assignments for photographs from writers in the OTT, as well as working on their own projects. The class will publish a photojournalism section in the OTT once a week, showcasing their ongoing work and personal projects. Campers will also produce high quality inkjet prints of some of their best images. Requirements: None, but campers are strongly encouraged to use their own digital cameras, so they have the opportunity to shoot both in and outside of camp.
