The International Center of Photography will be hosting a series of online classes in their continuing education program this winter. Ed Kashi (VII) will be teaching a course, The Art of Visual Storytelling: Exploring Photojournalism’s New Frontiers.
“In the digital age, traditional photojournalism has crossed over into and absorbed other media.” Using this concept as a springboard, participants will learn about creating a multi-platform story with photo essays, video, and multimedia elements. The course will also address the use of social media platforms, like Instagram, as a viable tool for visual storytelling.
Students will be looking at the work of instructor, Ed Kashi, along with other practitioners in the field. Weekly assignments dealing with still photography will be given and the class will culminate in a final semester project. The goal is to expand students’ “understanding of the possibilities in creating compelling images and stories and what to expect in this dramatically changing field of photography.”
This online course will take place from January 27 – April 7, 2014, meeting on Mondays from 7:00-9:00 pm. The course provides 20.00 semester hours and costs $500 to register. For more information and to reserve your spot visit the ICP course listing. There are a limited number of openings for this class so be sure to register early!
