Bill Dillane will give a presentation called “Photojournalism and Event Photography.” Bill will be providing a detailed explanation of the techniques and strategies for storytelling and photojournalism, with a focus on how to select and compose photographs that effectively convey a story or event. The presentation will include examples from the Associated Press (AP) and Photographic Society of America (PSA) guidelines to illustrate the points covered. The event will also feature a Q&A session, where participants can ask questions and discuss ideas on how to approach composition in order to enhance storytelling in their photographs.
Storytelling refers to a photograph’s ability to tell a story and capture the imagination of the viewer. Creativity involves finding an unusual or extraordinary way to portray an ordinary subject. Composition involves directing the viewer’s attention to the most beautiful or interesting elements of the photograph. Finally, technical excellence is the quality of the photograph itself, which can be achieved through both camera skills and editing techniques.
