Narrative Still Photography

Narrative Still Photography

Learn how to create a narrative or express a larger idea through still imagery.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

Narrative photography is a collection of short stories - each picture can stand alone in it’s originality, yet grouped together collectively support a larger intent. In this class you will work on your own body of images, get an overview of the difference between telling a story with moving images versus still photography, look at examples from national geographic photojournalism to conceptual photography in the Museum of Modern Art, and most importantly, you will learn how to use the sequencing of images as a powerful tool to communicate. Students will work on a project and produce a body of work in this class. This will result in an exhibition in CCTV’s Karen Aqua Gallery in September. Instructor: Sean Foulkes

Pre-requisites: CCTV Orientation, DSLR Photography OR a portfolio review of previous DSLR work edited with basic photoshop skills
