JTC 430 - Advanced Documentary Photography

Overview of Course

This is a hands-on course in the conceptualization and creation of transmedia blog posts that combine photography, videography, and text. Course content will analyze conceptual, photographic, and editing criteria for the creative transmedia documentation of people, places, and themes. After port visits on the voyage, students will submit a multimedia blog post focused on their personal experiences while traveling in that nation. Students will be guided by the instructor and peers in the course to create meaningful posts that highlight new cultural knowledge based on interactions with local citizens. Ethical issues concerning the documentation of overseas populations will be addressed, as well as the need to obtain permission to film in some sensitive religious locations on the voyage.
