You can submit your work to this site.
- In our class we will create a class Flickr group and we will examine photographs to better understand how to use good composition, exposure and color to capture compelling images.
- See student work from SP2010 semester here. http://www.flickr.com/photos/39053884@N05/44798
- Create a free account with Flickr and follow the tutorial below to get started.
- You will also be able to access Flickr images from a pool of free use photos-for use on your blog, but remember to always ask and give appropriate credit when using other people's images.
- Compelling photography can grab peoples interest to want to know more about the issue you're writing about.
- It is always best to work with your own photography or those of your team mates. Always carry a camera with you and be ready to shoot.
- The best documentary photographers shoot hundreds of pictures at a time to get one or two great photos....digital is cheap-find your story, frame up, focus, and engage!
