Visual Storytelling

Session 2

Lincoln Hall, LH 1026

11:20 AM - 12:30 PM

This workshop explores how can we use photographs to tell meaningful stories, document our own histories and connect with people around us. Sharing her experiences in her photojournalism career, Pat will give advice on how to take compelling photos that highlight your own unique perspective and how to share those stories with a broader audience.

If you have any photo projects that you would like to show for advice or just share, bring a digital or hard copy.
