LSE Research Festival Workshop: Photography 

Tuesday 25 November, 10.00 - 13.00

Presented by Bridget Smith

In this workshop you will discuss the power of photographs to convey complex ideas and how to use them effectively to illustrate your research. You will look at historical and contemporary examples of successful photographs that have encapsulated complicated social and political issues.
 
Practical tips on composition, framing, viewpoint and exposure will be offered. Many of you may have already taken photographs on fieldwork trips or you may be planning how to visually illustrate your research: researchers with work at any stage are welcome. Please bring any existing photographs to the workshop for feedback and advice.
 
Bridget Smith is a photographer represented by Frith Street Gallery, London. She is a tutor at the Royal Academy Schools and was Senior Lecturer Photography at Kingston University.

LSE Research Festival Workshop: Poster

Tuesday 2 December, 14:00 – 17:00

Presented by Susannah Rees, UAL     

Posters are an increasingly popular way of illustrating research, and are a great method for presenting complex information succinctly. At this workshop, you will discuss the ‘mechanics’ of poster design, learning how choice of layout, typeface and image can impact on the success of a poster’s ability to communicate to an audience. You will then have the chance to try out some of these techniques on your own poster.
