So, for those of you who may be concerned about being fashionable in the heat/chilling ac contrast temps, here is an article for you!
Really, a scarf for 115-degree summer days
On another note, I genuinely feeling out of my element...I have never taken a journalism class or a photography course of any kind. In college I did photography the old-fashioned way with chemicals in a dark room for the yearbook and newspaper, but I have to admit all those numbers thrown out today about cameras went whooshing over my head.
However, I did catch the concern in Rob Schumacher's concern when he said there is "a drought of photo journalists" as many are leaving the business. I also found it interesting that 42% of the web traffic on the AZ Republic website is from the still photography, wow! The power of a good photo is still there, and I can teach my students some of the basics including the importance of background setting, getting the entire body (feet included), avoid mid-day shots, move close the the subject matter, and so much more. Rob said, "Still photography will hold its own, with or without sound."
A photo is definitely worth a 1000 words and maybe more. His photos certainly were, and I did enjoy the show.
