A new crop of PJ students

   Classes resume at Owens Jan. 10.
   I'm very excited about this upcoming semester because this class is as progressive as the time we live in. The current curriculum is designed to give students a competitive edge in today's market.  Photojournalism students must be media social savvy, as well as educated in the traditional staples of the profession - shooting news, feature and sporting assignments.
   With that in mind, students will:
  • create and maintain a photo blog;
  • learn the legal, ethical and responsibilities of traditional and social media;
  • use current editing and multimedia software, like Photo Mechanic, PhotoShop CS5, Audacity and Soundslides;
  • shoot traditional photojournalism assignments; and
  • write AP style captions.
   I invite you to follow along throughout the semester. Individual photo blogs will not be posted until Jan. 17.
