On Friday we will have our second guest speaker — Brooks Canaday, a staff photographer for Northeastern University and a photojournalist who has shot for the Boston Herald and other clients.
I am also stretching out our photo-story assignment, which I haven’t posted yet. I have revised the syllabus, so please take a look. Your photo story will now be due on Monday, Oct. 7, at 9 a.m. For this coming Tuesday, I want you to shoot five people-oriented photos and be prepared to show them and edit them in class. Again, consult the syllabus for further details.
The syllabus originally said that we would be posting our slideshows to Flickr. Unfortunately, the new “improved” Flickr looks nice but, in my opinion, is no longer a suitable tool for putting together a news presentation. We will base our slideshows on WordPress galleries instead.
Here are some places where you can find great photojournalism every day:
- The Big Picture, Boston.com
- In Focus, The Atlantic
- Lens, The New York Times
- The Frame, The Sacramento Bee
- Photo Journal, The Wall Street Journal
- The Image, Deconstructed
