More is More: Documentary Photography Workshop

Foothill College: PHOT-078C-01 Field Study in Photography Workshop

Winter Quarter 2010 – SF Bay Area Documentary Photography Workshop

Photograph by Lesley Louden - Botswana, Africa

In this course we will complete the documentary photographic process by seeing a project through from start to finish. Pre-production, shooting, editing, caption writing, and short statement writing will all be completed on a smaller scale project in this short course. We will be photographing events and building stories. The first event will get our feet wet and give us focus through a defined process discussed in-class. Learning from our first real photographic event will constructively prepare us for our final workshop project. Workshop meetings will include activities around the process of editing (choosing images to be included in the final series) as well as how to write captions and bring clarity to your docu-project through the pairing of words and images.
