This two-part assignment includes one photograph and one video. Please answer the questions below:
Part I: Photography
For this part of the assignment, select a current news article from AP News (you may use their website or an article from the World News section of your newspaper) that contains at least one photograph that is cited with the photographers name. Read the article, and then download the photograph or photographs (or take a photo if it is from a newspaper). Then, research background information about the photographer using the CSU Online Library or another reputable source. In your essay, include a copy of the photo or photos, give a summary of the article and photographers background information, and explain how the photograph or photographs helped explain or support the news story. You can also write about what other photographs could have helped explain the story better or are lacking from the story.
Part II: Video
For this part of the assignment, select a current news article from AP News (or another reputable news source) that features a video. Research the issue or event featured in the video. In your submission, provide a link to the video, give a summary of the article, and explain how the video helped explain or support the news story. Include what other footage could have helped explain the story better or are lacking from the story.
Your submission must have a minimum of 2 pages of writing.
Adhere to APA Style when creating citations and references for this assignment. APA formatting, however, is not necessary.
This assignment will focus on Contemporary Photography and Videography. The assignment instructions state to use the Associated Press, NY Times, or Reuters websites to find an image and video then research the news photographer and videographer who captured the moment. However, if you are unable to find detailed information about a news photographer or videographer, the CSU Art Appreciation LibGuide can be used to locate an artwork and information about a Contemporary Photographer and Videographer. You will still need to discuss how this artwork impacts or represents the circumstances in which it was created.
For this essay, follow the instructions below. Please include an image and image still of the artwork. This image does not count towards the 1 page length that each part of this assignment requires. Your assignment should be at least 2 written pages in length (double spaced, 12 point Times New Roman font).
Sources used, including the textbook, must be properly cited and referenced.
