This one-day workshop will teach you how to tell humanitarian stories through photographs for media, NGOs, charities and corporate social responsibility programmes. This is a hands-on photography experience aimed at people working in the NGO sector and non-professional photographers who want to tell compelling humanitarian stories through photos.

What you will cover:

An introduction to Adobe Bridge (an archiving and captioning program) and Adobe Photoshop (for retouching images),
How to caption and send an image ready for editorial use; size, resolution and format,
We will talk through five images from each participant and discuss how they could be improved,
Using examples, we will look at composition and use of light,
Participants will be asked to shoot a short photo story based on what you’ve learnt. This will take between one and two hours. You will then download all images with captions and, with the trainer’s help, edit your photos into a short story which will be presented and critiqued by the group

What to bring:

Five photographs for discussion,
A digital camera (quality and size not important) or smart phone with camera,
A laptop if possible,
Adobe Bridge and Adobe Photoshop (CS5) will be used for the training – if participants have this on their laptops already it would be good to bring along.
