JOUR 153 - Photojournalism


Credits: 3


 

This course introduces the professional practice of photojournalism, which lies at the intersection of journalism and visual communication. The course emphasizes visual theory and journalistic ethics alongside extensive hands-on practice. Practice involves technical training in the use of digital single-lens reflex cameras as opposed to smartphone camera technology. Students will complete activities on campus and, in the third week, visit Washington, D.C., to apply what they’ve learned. At the end of the D.C. visit, students will also complete a strenuous hike of Old Rag Mountain to photograph nature. Original imagery from travel will be presented to the W&L community during the final week of the course.
