WORKSHOP: Documenting through photography

Documenting through photography

In this workshop on 27 October, professional photographer, ER Lombard, will take participants through an experiential workshop focusing on how best to show your work to the world.

What is documentary photography?

How do you tell your, or your organisation’s story? Do the photos you use on social media have the impact that you desire?

 In this workshop we will unpack some of the things that can make or break a photo:

  • Choosing what to focus on
  • Ethical concerns when working with vulnerable populations
  • Consent and model release forms
  • How to caption your photos for optimal impact
  • How to take the best possible photos with limited tools

The workshop is aimed at people who:

  • are involved in NGOs or NPOs
  • want to learn the basics of documentary photography
  • want to increase their social media footprint with good visuals
  • want to learn how to use photographic principles to make them/their company stand out.
