A photo essay is a set or series of photographs that are intended to tell a story or evoke a series of emotions. In classroom discussions, discover how the essay can help develop a more cohesive body of work. Homework assignments are designed to encourage students to explore their own personal interests. A review of images in the last class provides an opportunity to receive valuable feedback for continued successful shooting.
