Photography Now with Ozier Muhammad
Spring 2018 Workshop
In 1985, Ozier Muhammad shared the Pulitzer Prize in International Reporting with Josh Friedman and Dennis Bell for a series of Newsday reports entitled “Africa, The Desperate Continent.” This series about drought and famine and its political consequences also earned Ozier Muhammad the Polk Award in News Photography.
In “Photography Now with Ozier Muhammad,” Mr. Muhammad will draw from over forty years of experience as a photojournalist to teach a group of twelve to fourteen students of color, of all ages, three different types of photography: documentary photography, street photography and photojournalism. During the course of this eight week workshop, students will learn to create compelling images that depict our current society and its evolving culture.
The workshop will be held on Wednesday evenings at LMHQ’s Tesla Classroom, 6:30pm - 8:30pm.
Participating students will need a digital camera that has either a hotshoe or a fast lens. In some instances, both features are present in a single camera such as the Canon PowerShot G1 or G15.
Select images will be projected on screen for discussion and review throughout the workshop. There will be demonstrations of photographic techniques (e.g., using available light and ambient light). Lectures on creativity and imagination will be followed by assignments where student will be able to practice their craft.
