Photojournalism is an introductory photo course in the Arts, Media and Entertainment pathway that exposes students to cutting-edge digital media for storytelling and production. Modeled after an authentic work environment, this course is mostly project-based and highly collaborative. After the initial training period (Quarters 1 & 2), students are graded based upon works produced in small groups. Students will learn all aspects of photography and photojournalism including (but not limited to) pre-production planning, photographing using effective camera techniques (composition, lighting, depth of field, etc.) and digital editing using Adobe Photoshop. Students will publish works in student media print and will review works in a whole class environment.
