So you’ve found the site. Now what?
Well, the site is currently reflecting the work of students from the Spring 2013 semester, but feel free to browse. You might learn a little by seeing how other students have approached their assignments. See if you can tell when they’ve done well and when they haven’t done so well.
Between now and the start of the Spring 2014 semester, the site will undergo many changes. The work of the previous class will disappear. And I am planning many changes in the way this course is taught to reflect both the current state of the news industry and the specific needs of GSU students who are studying communications.
Start reading. Try clicking on the pages (black bar) and topics (gray bar) menus above, first, so you can get a better understanding of this course.
Know what you’re getting into. First and foremost, this class in NOT an introduction to photography. Read the syllabus so you know what to expect, but expect some changes before the start of the semester. We’ll go over this during the first class.
Learn about me. Watch the audio slideshow linked at the end of my bio. Tell me what you think. I try to be as available and accessible as possible. Feel free to email, call me, or even drop by the Statesboro Herald and talk to me if you have any questions or concerns.
Learn about using this blog/web site. You will be required to become users with “author” status so you can post material, as you will be uploading your shooting assignments to this site. Look for an email invitation to join and simply follow the directions.
Just explore and check out all the links as you have time. Like I said, I’m still in the process of resetting everything on this site after using it last semester. If you encounter any glitches or are confused about references to Spring 2013, let me know and I’ll try to clarify for you.
Like I said, feel free to contact me any time with questions or concerns. You have my email, now. You have my phone number. Don’t hesitate!
Looking forward to meeting you all in January!
