COMM 329 - PHOTOJOURNALISM
In this course students will be introduced to the contemporary practices of photojournalism, and explore the aesthetic, technical, cultural, and historical forces that have shaped its evolution as a form of visual communication. Students will first learn how real photojournalists work, and they will be expected to work in a similar fashion. They will be given selected weekly assignments in which they must produce good story telling images. They will learn how to develop a story idea, cover events, and produce images like a professional. This course will be conducted in a manner similar to the real working world of professional photojournalism. Students will be responsible for taking pictures with their own cameras and producing their own developed negatives or digital images. They will learn how to edit their own photographs and how to scan and prepare selected images in Adobe Photoshop. The emphasis of this course will be on picture taking not picture developing. This is NOT a darkroom class or a basic photography class. All film and print developing will be done outside of class. It is suggested that each student have some basic photography experience (a basic understanding of exposure and camera operation is required). Lab Fee.
