Tell Your Stories Through Photos

Standard

PhotoStories-Workshop-Small

The proliferation of visual technologies like cameras and online image editing tools has made storytelling more engaging. On July 26, 2014, the CFA Training Department will conduct a workshop on Photostories for Evangelization. It will be held from 9:00am to 5:00 pm at the Seminar Room of the Communication Foundation for Asia.

Visual storytelling and photosharing give people new ways to connect, collaborate and build community. Through this hands-on workshop, participants will be able to create visual stories using online comic-creating apps, share self-generated photobooks and photoalbums, and find, download and embed relevant photos.

Facilitating the workshop are Fr. Stephen Cuyos, MSC and Ms. Bob Lopez who have been conducting workshops on the use of social media for evangelization for bishops, priests, religious and lay leaders nationwide.

Stephen Cuyos, MSC, an award-winning graphic artist who infected them with his passion for photography and influenced them to take photos that capture not only the eyes but also the soul.

Fr. Stephen tackled the basic rules in photography while relating them to life. Being a priest, he shared faith-based concepts and morals that inspired participants to take shots that deepened their spirituality. To further improve the shots, He also gave tips on photo enhancing and editing by using a free online photo-editing tool. The workshop ended with the participants producing professional looking photos and all were eager to practice their new photography skills.

The next episodes on the Skillshare Series by the CFA Training Department will be about Social Media and the New Evangelization. On July 26, 2014 (Saturday), it will be on Creating Photostories for Evangelization. It will be held here at Communication Foundation for Asia.
