Welcome to a learning space maintained for my photojournalism students

Covering an Obama campaign rally.
   This blog is especially beneficial to my students in the Visual Storytelling (Owens Community College), Digital Photojournalism (Wayne State University) and Teaching Multimedia (Kent State University) classes.
   Because I am teaching all three courses this semester, there will be mixture of content. Some posts will be for all classes, and some will be class specific. I will indicate those posts that are specific, but it won't hurt to read all posts. After all, every lesson offers something you might want to learn!
   I strongly suggest thoroughly scrolling through this blog in the next few weeks to become familiar with the content posted in past semesters.
   There is also a search bar that's pretty handy when you want to look for something specific, like shutter speed and f/stop controls and social media tools. Another cool feature is the archive box in the upper right corner. When we get to a certain lesson, I change the featured archived story to coincide with that lesson, like my Camtasia Studio video tutorials I created just for the Teaching Multimedia students! This way I don't have to rewrite a blog post. Why reinvent the wheel?
   Please check out this website at least once a week. But don't worry, if I want you to read a current post that corresponds with a particular lesson, I'll provide the link in that assignment module.
   Thank you for caring about journalism, and read on!
