Photography: The Visual Narrative

Course Description
Human beings are story tellers. Narrative is how we lend meaning to our lives. Join me in exploring how the visual narrative works. Visual stories can be as short as one frame or as long as a book. Through daily exercises we will look at how photographs tell stories and concentrate on making images that connect on an emotionally effective level.
