When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls!

Getting into Photojournalism
Tuesday, 17 February 2009 15:13

Photojojo, an e-zine I subscribe to, is really good when it comes to giving you projects, tips, and other photography-related articles. The lastest article was on 9 Tips for Breaking into Photojournalism. I was recently thinking about doing the Peter Parker thing (if you don't know who that is, watch the Spiderman Movie) and putting together a portfolio and marketing myself to local papers. I have lots of events that I go to and shoot, hey, I think i'd be able to do the whole photojournalist thing.

Anyways, to anyone that has ever thought about doing photojournalism, definetly check out that article. And if you dont have any interest in that particular article, but you are into photography, check out PhotoJoJo. I find it to have a lot of fun projects to embark on. There are also tutorials on how to create certain effects, and even updates to whats going on in the Photography world (ie the death of Poloroid, Cry)

Recently I have uploaded a bunch of old party photos to my Myspace page. I'm debating on wheter I should place an album on here, as they are not 'artistic' photos, just memoriable pics from parties I used to go to. After reading the article mentioned above tho, I am probably going to create an album of different event pictures I have taken. I have pictures from last years Tattoo Convention, a pet blessing ceremony my mom conducts at her church, photos from the Gay Pride Parade 2006, and other events that I documented in photographs. I think I could make it as a photojournalist. I really should get myself together and market my skills as such.
