Workshop students out on assignment

Students went to the Applied Science and Technology Building on NKU’s campus with iPads in hand and took photos for the workshop’s Instagram contest. The theme for the contest was “What’s Hot” and the students observed men working on heavy machinery. The students explored the journalistic applications Instagram offers in its ability to immediately get a message to a large audience, as well as other social media sites like Vine and Twitter. Veteran photojournalist Bruce Crippen had a bird’s eye view as the students got just the right shot and he demonstrated how getting a different point of view can enhance the story.
