Last Friday, after reviewing our colleagues’ “30 Day” project photos in our Picture Story class, Professor David Rees suggested that we all should start including more people. I don’t think this was quite what he had in mind.
Here, he rallies our class together after viewing a judging at Pictures of the Year International, an annual photojournalism contest held at the University of Missouri. People can either sit in on the judging as it happens, or stream it live on their computers. We chose the former.
Have no fear, David, you won’t be the only person in my 30 Day Project!
On a technical note, this image would have been far better if I’d used fill flash (and exposed for the background). However, a surprising amount of highlight detail was “recovered” in RAW processing in Lightroom.
