Storytelling with Photography - Workshop
TIME: 6pm - 9pm MT
COST: $69 for BDA members, $89 for non-members
Every picture tells a story, or so says Rod Stewart.
Whatever your ambitions and motivations may be, this is a class for photographers who want to harness the camera's ability to tell stories. It makes absolutely no difference whether you are fully outfitted with the latest SLR equipment or are working with the simplest point-and-shoot. Telling good photographic stories transcends equipment.
This class may not transform you into a globe-trotting photojournalist, but it will spark your imagination. Who wouldn't love to have a more dynamic way of using their camera to document a trip or special event...or even the growth and development of your family over time?
Great pictures tell stories by capturing both information and emotion. Unfortunately, great pictures are hard to come by, even for the best photographers, because they require a combination of competence, preparation and opportunity - three things that rarely present themselves concurrently.
As a result, storytelling - visual storytelling - is more often achieved through combining photographs into "picture stories." Simple, right? Well, no, actually. As most professional photojournalists will tell you, picture stories are among the most difficult assignments.
In this class we will learn what it takes to create a successful picture story. You will learn the key components to dramatically improve your ability to tell a story through photography and retain the interest of your audience. You will learn how to think about, shoot and edit a picture story for maximum impact. We will also discuss presentation - single pages, books and multimedia - and how it can impact the way you pursue your story. This workshop will help you harness the power of great photography to tell great stories.
