Class photo, Uganda 2012

For the members of the Backpack Journalism 2012 team, the past few days have been filled with cameras, video, equipment, list-making, packing (or thinking about packing) and excitement as the countdown to the departure gets closer.

One of the Backpack traditions is the class photo. With the help of JM&C department coordinator and photographer Nichole Jelinek, the team tried for serious (didn’t quite happen), reflective and silly.

The time-out for photos comes as the team begins to delve into the theology of the African Church, more video shooting and editing and journalistic interviewing. Two more days of class and then the journey really begins.
