World-renowned photojournalist, and author of the most’re-tweeted' photo in Twitter history, Ms. Scout Tufankjian generously volunteered her time to AGBU Armenia staff on June 6. Staff benefited from her years of experience and learned some tricks of the trade and professional secrets to taking better, more interesting photographs. During the two-hour seminar, Ms. Tufankjian covered areas such as composition, lighting and more. Participants practiced taking pictures, critiqued their photos and benefited from Ms. Tufankjian's expert comments. Scout Tufankjian has traveled the globe, recording some of the most interesting subjects and issues of our times. From the USA to Armenia, from Haiti to Egypt, from Gaza to Anatolia, she has recorded people and events, embedding them in our hearts and minds forever. In August 2012, she was invited to cover President Barack Obama's campaign as a journalist. After two years of covering that campaign, she has compiled her photographs into the book YES WE CAN: Barack Obama's History-Making Presidential Campaign. Currently, she is working on a project called The Armenian Diaspora Project, in which she is chronicling, through photography, stories of the Armenian Diaspora.
