On Assignment

with Adriana Zehbrauskas

This class will focus on how to  develop a photo essay and tell a visual story while working on assignment. Working fast, in the most unpredictable conditions, meeting deadlines and delivering  the photos that the editor is expecting while still maintaining your own personal style.
Each student is expected to do an assignment and work the field. Stories/general theme may be assigned or the student can choose to work on his own topic. (It is  highly advised to prepare beforehand!)
Everyday we will meet in the classroom to go over the work and discuss problems, approaches, technical difficulties, ethical dilemas, etc.
All work will be edited down to twelve images to be presented on the final evening to the whole workshop.
