Assignment 10: The Photo Essay

The objective is to synthesize skills learned throughout the semester to tell a story in a sequence of images that have a relationship to each other.  This is an introduction to ‘the photo essay.’ Students should use a variety of distances, angles and focal lengths to shoot photos while documenting an event, a theme, or a story.  The assignment will count as 20% of the final grade.
