    So....I just landed a new job as a "photojournalist" for an up and coming website about Philly. The cool thing is I have total artistic freedom...the problem is I need SOME sort of limits or else I tend to overload myself with ideas. So I have settled on Photo essays


    How the fuck do you do a Photo essay?

    Last week, a cute little pussy followed me from my car into the house.

    She was a playful little fucker, too.

    And she loves water (because I was out of milk).

    And like most pussies, she was ready to leave as soon as she was done.

    Well I like teaching myself new techniques (I recently learned how to "shoot from the hip"). It's a nice challenge and keeps my skills sharp.

    Aside from that I was afraid of my shots becoming little more than a jumbled mess of shots meaning nothing.

    A photo essay (or "photographic essay") is a set or series of photographs that are intended to tell a story or evoke a series of emotions in the viewer. A photo essay will often show pictures in deep emotional stages. Photo essays range from purely photographic works to photographs with captions or small notes to full text essays with a few or many accompanying photographs. Photo essays can be sequential in nature, intended to be viewed in a particular order, or they may consist of non-ordered photographs which may be viewed all at once or in an order chosen by the viewer. All photo essays are collections of photographs, but not all collections of photographs are photo essays. Photo essays often address a certain issue or attempt to capture the character of places and events.
