with Richard Harris
Jul 21, 10-4pm
The goal of this class is to add another tool to one's camera bag. Storytelling in a visual media can be exciting and rewarding. At the same time it can be challenging, even frustrating. In this class, we will see and practice storytelling, i.e., documentary photography, as it is taught by the Royal Photographic Society and practiced in the UK. We will present and discuss the types of images, the number of images, and their sequencing. With assignments in hand, we'll shoot photos and critique them for their storytelling attributes.
RICHARD HARRIS studied photography at VCUQatar and at University of Brighton, UK. He has completed workshops given by The Royal Photographic Society, Professional Photographers of America, Santa Fe Photographic Workshops, and Maine Media Workshops. Richard used film and digital cameras. His current interest include hybrid historic processes, low key portraits, and image sequencing as part of pictorial storytelling. His work is in several personal collections.
