WEEKLY STORIES FROM ADVANCED PHOTOJOURNALISM COURSE [Mondays 9 a.m. - 11:50 a.m.] This is a collection of weekly assignments from my Advanced Photojournalism Course (JO513) at Boston University, with Professor Peter Southwick. When I began, I had very little knowledge of how to shoot a photojournalistic story, write captions, or capture the essence of a moment. As I have moved on, my work has progressed and while these short stories are not all together flattering, I do think it accurately portrays where I started in September 2012 and how far along I've come. [The weekly assignment dictates that we find a story and capture it in five photos (with proper captions), due every Monday morning at 9 a.m.]
