Narrative Photography Workshop

In March, I ran a workshop on 'Narrative Photography'. 

We spent the first hour storyboarding and finalising ideas, before going on to creating the paper props. Each student aimed to create a series of up to four photographs that linked together.  

The final hour was spent in the londonprintstudio's photobooth.

There was an array of paper speech bubbles and masks. It definitely showed the students alternative methods they could use to create sequential images that convey a storyline.

Here are a few of the photographs from the workshop.

Our Trip to Angoulême!

Last night londonprintstudio Comic Collective went to talk at Laydeez Do Comics about our trip to Angoulême at the end of January. Angoulême is Europe's largest festival for comic (or 'Bande Dessinée' as they are called in France). The whole city is taken over with comics; bakeries have comics laid out in the shop windows among the buns, there are comics painted on the buildings and there are lots and lots of talks, museums and tents full of all things comicky. It was like we'd died and gone to heaven! Here are the comic blogs each intern drew about their experiences...and some photos.
