This course introduces the basics of still photography for use in mass communications. The latest digital photographic techniques will be employed throughout, including digital still cameras and digital darkroom software on computers. In this course, we will look at how journalism professionals can take their own photographs, as well as work with professional photographers. The work output should be suitable for publication in newspapers, magazines, company publications, brochures, and digital slide-show presentations. By providing a basic appreciation of photojournalism, this course should be of value to aspiring photojournalists as well as writers and editors seeking a broader visual awareness.
