Journalism students create photo-essays
Students in Mr. Pesa’s journalism class created original photo-essays as part of a unit on photojournalism. Students chose a theme, took their own photos, wrote cutlines (captions), introductions and reflections, edited some of the photos in Photoshop, and created their own presentation websites on Weebly.com.
Many of these photo-essays are nature-themed because the students participated in a photography workshop from Wide Angle Youth Media where they went outside to do a photoshoot. Nonetheless, there are a variety of different themes reflected in this collection.
Mr. Pesa plans to print the photos out and hang them up in the hallway, as well as putting them on the digital monitor in the cafeteria. Some of the photos will also be featured in the upcoming print edition of the Patterson Press. Additionally, some of the photos may be selected for a travelling art exhibit sponsored by Wide Angle Youth Media.
