Course Brief :
The main factor that distinguishes documentary photography from photojournalism is - time. Photojournalists work for the moment - capturing events in the moment, and portraying them factually to encapulate what has happened in one or several powerful images. Where news moves quickly in these digital times, accuracy and speed are the winners in the race to publication.
Documentary photography takes a different turn. While facts are still of paramount importance, time takes a backseat. Documentary stories can range over day, weeks, even sometimnes years. The goal here is to dive beneath the proverbial "tip of the iceberg," to tell the story in deeper, more comprehensive visual detail, and often with artistic vision.
In this six-lesson, six-assignment online and interactive course we'll explore and practice both genres. From capturing in a photo the joy of your child at play, the passion of a public speaker the podium, to an exploration of a subject or situation of personal interest, you'll work with professional professional documentary photographer and photojournalist, David Bathgate, in an interactive way, throughout the course.
Whether you travel the world with your camera, or simply explore your own hometown, neighborhood, or family life at home, photojournalistic moments and documentary stories are everywhere. In this insightful, inspiring, and interactive online course we will cover and practice it all.
