Photojournalism is a form of photography, where one learns to deal with the extreme reality of life and purity of photography. It deals with humanitarian, political and socially relevant stories from each photographers unique personal perspective. It is a real test for photographers who want to take up the challenge of creating and telling stories, work on long term projects apart from dealing with the daily world of news.
Photo Journalism and social documentary photography are among the oldest professions in Photography. It has a very relevant role to play in everyday lives of the masses and their awareness towards keeping up with the present day around the globe through newspapers, magazines & online news portals.
During this module we plan to understand the various aspects of being a photo Journalist and how to look for those visual stories that give the world an insight into the everyday day scenario. We will try to understand the responsibility of being a photographer in various difficult conditions and situations .We will learn to work on photo features with strong contexts and visually changing ideas.
There will be emphasis on visual story telling, creating impactful visuals and sensitive reporting of the subjects. We will be looking at creating our own Blogs and updating it regularly by searching, identifying and reporting the stories that we wish to address to the people around us.
