We know the impact that photographic images can have on us, individually and collectively. When images and words come together to tell a story they can be entertaining, revelatory, breathtaking, and even powerful agents of change. In this unit, you will work with media professionals to learn the basics of creating a photo essay. During the unit you will hone your writing skills and learn how to create, select, and edit photographic images. Putting words and images together, you will learn how to use the photo essay format for personal, professional, or creative expression.
