The Event: Documentary Photo-Workshop, Summer 2010

Foothill College, SF South Bay Area

1 Weekend, Photo-Workshop, Summer 2010



In this course we will complete the documentary photographic process by seeing a project through from start to finish. Pre-production, shooting, editing, and caption writing, will all be completed on a smaller scale project in this short course. We will be photographing an event and building a story. A pre-shooting day workshop meeting 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. Then we will go as a group to photograph a public event.


ORIENTATION: Tuesday, June 29th, from 6-8pm in Room 6107 or Studio@ Foothill College (You must attend this orientation OR connect with Lesley Louden for registration.
