In this course, each student will find an interesting aspect to a person’s life to photographically document. Students will then write and record an audio narration to accompany the series of images. One instruction day will focus on how to build a series of images about one aspect of your subject’s life as well as how to write a narration. Then students will independently document their subjects and sequence the images as the foundation for assisting you in the writing of your narration. We will then record the narration at Foothill. The narration will be incorporated with the photographic series as a short audio-visual slideshow!
