Learn the basics of artistic photographic practice and apply them to documentary photojournalistic content. Using digital photography and a documentary approach, utilize content-driven visual storytelling to investigate subjects in the landscape or community. Class time includes critique, lectures, discussion and studio time. Lectures and readings will cover the work of photographers using the documentary style, and you will create a final portfolio of images. Students must provide their own DSLR cameras with manual control of shutter speed and aperture. Prerequisite: Digital Photography I, Digital Media for Photographers, after Digital Photography II or equivalent experience.

Note: Those enrolled must be comfortable with their DSLR camera and able to operate it on manual modes, including use of flash. There will be very limited instruction on the how-to's of the DSLR. Students should also be comfortable with Lightroom 4 and have some experience with Photoshop CS 4 or higher.
