Shippensburg University students join forces with renowned photojournalist, Stan Honda, to capture the sights of South Central Pennsylvania. The students have spent the semester studying with Honda to explore and learn about photojournalism. The students used advance level digital cameras to tell stories with their still images. The exhibit showcases photos taken from their final projects, a 5-10 photo picture story. The subjects of the stories are as varied as the students who come from Shippensburg and across the globe. Most of the students had no photography experience and learned while pointing their cameras at Shippensburg landscapes including the campus and town and at the vast and grand spaces of Gettysburg National Military Park.

“The learning curve was steep and in the end they produced compelling storytelling photographs in journalistic style.” – Stan Honda
