"I'm an apostrophe a symbol to remind you that there's more to see I'm just a product of the system, a catastrophe And yet a masterpiece, and yet I'm half-diseased And when I am deceased At least I go down to the grave and die happily Leave the body and my soul to be a part of thee"
Telling the story with Images
Photojournalism: is a particular style of Photography and journalism. (and Pretty much my style of shooting) A way to tell the "Story" by employing images to tell the Story. a bit like Street Photography. It is usually understood to refer only to still images, but in some cases the term also refers to video used in broadcast journalism. Photojournalism is distinguished from other branches of photography (e.g., documentary photography, social documentary photography, street photography or celebrity photography) by complying with a rigid ethical framework That demands the work be both honest and impartial whilst telling the story in strictly journalistic terms. My style of photography is Photojournalism. I am a Big Fan of the Candid Shot. and one of my Favorite things to do is going to events such as big comminty celabrations and events andf capture not just the memories but be able to tell a story with those memories using Photography.
Photojournalism and Street Photography along and this Blog, the aim is to document the human Condition. another way of "Telling the Story" simply thru Images. to Capture the Scene as it Happens without any set up or Posing or Interfering with the Situation. a Matter of Documenting an Event as it unfolds. witnessing the story thru a lens documenting Life.. follow along with some of my shoots. Please keep in mind this is a work in progress more content will be added as time and my sanity allow it
