Part A: Using the Time Magazine: Photo-Journalism link on the "Learning from Professionals" page, find one article that interests you and answer the following questions:
1. Why did you choose this story? (2 sentences or more)
2. Describe how the photos emotionally connect with you, the viewer. How can you relate to them? (2 sentences or more)
3. Read the whole text of the story. Please do not skim read, instead really take in the story.
4. Now copy and paste the most well phrased, impacting, or important sentence in the story.
5. For you, why is that the most important sentence?
6. As visual compositions, what is working well in the photos? (be specific)
Part B: Another type of photo-journalism is called a photo essay. In a photo essay the photos themselves tell the story for the most part, and next to the photos are short captions giving us more detail.
1. Using the Time Magazine: Photo Essay link on the "Learning from Professionals" page, find one essay that interests you. Look at all the photos and read the captions.
2. With a partner or by yourself, do your best to create a short photo essay using a subject that is in or around the school. It can be a simple or complex story you are capturing. Here are some ideas: Follow an ant around on their journey on the pavement, bother a teacher (WHO IS NOT IN CLASS) and document their prep time. Document aspects of the memorial garden. Act out a story of a classmate and document it.
