Beware of Analysis Paralysis…

It’s hot out there…and muggy. Our minds slow down. We do less. Our expectations are NOT met.

Seem familiar?

I often witness my photo students stuck in their decisions. They use their left brain more than necessary for the task at hand. Intimate personal observations are more appealing than the larger view I share with them. Many accept this. Others become stuck in their decision process even where to point their cameras.

On our urban field trips, I encourage whimisical views of contemporary life to give them freedom to play, to randomly mix up their captures. They combine simple, personal observations with their compassionate interest in the human condition. This practice hones their ability to interject their personal feelings more to tell their story

Telling a story through photographs is…photojournalism. A bulky word, it has a broad reach from portraiture to nature, sports to architecture, spot news to general news…oh and the beloved features…the mama duck crossing the sreet in traffic with her ducklings following right behind. 

The Floyd Photo Gallery is committed to offer more photojournalism workshops and artwok. My fav two photojournalists you ask? Marc St. Onge and Jerrey Roberts. Thank you for playing.…
