Documentary Photography

This series explores the tools and techniques documentarians use to overcome technological, social, and narrative challenges and tell a good story.

Making documentary work means adopting a special stance toward the world: a way of seeing, a disposition, and a consciousness. This series will help you reach the documentary state of mind.

It also covers visual storytelling. Whereas other forms of photography draw from traditions of graphic design and painting, documentary photography is a branch of drama and storytelling. The power of documentary story isn't in the pictures themselves, it's in the combination of pictures, text, sound and context that creates a compelling, and often emotional, story. This series will help you craft your story.
