The Art of Observing and Anticipation: Photojournalism/Street Photography/Documentary
with Daniel Rodrigue

 

I’ll discuss the subtle and not-so-subtle differences between street photography, photojournalism and documentary photography while explaining some of the art-and-craft and techniques that can help photographers in their approach to visual storytelling –whether on assignment for an art director or photo editor and magazine or newspaper, shooting and entering a photo contest or just taking snapshots for their own family albums and personal portfolios.

SPECIAL ACTIVITIES

DCC Lock Down Challenge #16
August 8th to 15th

“Glass is a non-crystalline, often transparent amorphous solid, that has widespread practical, technological, and decorative use in, for example, window panes, tableware, and optics” (Wikipedia). Without man-made silicate glass, we may well still be relying on “pin-hole” cameras for our photography. The challenge this week is to use your best glass to make images of glass. Anything goes, so have fun and be creative. Send me (lpetterborg@gmail.com) five (5) of your favorite shots by Saturday, Aug. 15th
