A student project in partnership with WXXI
During the 2016 fall semester, the photojournalism embarked on a group project focusing on the Presidential Election happening that November. We partnered with WXXI, which meant the students were able to have some of their work published.
There were several practical applications from a picture editing perspective and I tried to capitalize on some of these with the students. There were many valuable aspects of the election project and I believe we will build on this experience in meaningful ways going forward.
