Photobomb 2016 Election

Photobombs- Through political photography, find examples of how the candidate is targeting specific political themes (5) (job creation, education, security, etc). You must also comment on the visual strategies that help persuade for the candidate (camera angle, lighting, positioning, obvious "photoshopping".

Who is running?

D- Hillary Clinton            Bernie Sanders

R- Jeb!             Ben Carson     Chris Christie       Ted Cruz      Carly Fiorina     John Kasich

     Marco Rubio           Donald Trump 

For  Thursday- 2.  Persuaders -Remember that the basic qualities of product advertising are at play with politics.  The difference is that you a spending a vote rather than money.  The candidates are products so let's see how they sell themselves.  Just as you found evidence yesterday of appeals towards a specific target voter, let's dig deeper to find how the methods of persuasion are layered in the official web sites of the candidates.  Find the evidence of the following:

A)3 "Basic Appeals"
B) 3 VALS techniques
C) 3 Example how the candidates attempting to build community around themselves (3)

After you paste your evidence, draw an arrow on the photo and provide a brief explanation of how the technique is used by the candidate for a particular effect.  I will be most impressed by successful identification of the DRAB!  .
