Why I started this blog.
Photojournalism is coming alive at Ole Miss. Students are being visually challenged like they’ve never been challenged by professors. It’s a new day.
Do we have thousands of dollars donated for camera gear? No. Is that stopping us? No.
We work with what we’ve got and we push until we get results. In the end it’s up to the students if they want to rise to the occasion and be a part of this process. But what I can say is, I believe in these students. I hope the standards that I’ve set will continue to influence them in other professionals aspects of their lives. Some of these students have never really picked up a camera, a couple take photos for the yearbook and school paper, The Daily Mississippian, but in general, they are new to what I’m introducing. And they’re making me proud. So, I feel I must showcase their work at every opportunity I get. Due tonight - pictorials - Alysia
