Photojournalism, the most awaited class began lastly. It is the session I have been looking forward for, though hard-hitting it is going to be. I will, hopefully, develop my skills in taking pictures by the end of the semester. Dorji sir had the lectures started off by narrating his holidays at the U.S. Taking note of his personal practice has always been inspirational for me. How he would illustrate a state as his finest in which most of us, at least, I would have considered being unworkable. Positively, I will have myself on the accurate trail with a lead grand as him.
As expected he had the guest lecturers arranged already. For the next couple of weeks Pema Rinzin sir, an expertise from Bhutanese Film Industry, will be coaching us on Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Audition and Adobe Premier. He had us introduced the topics in the earlier semester. The lessons will be centered primarily on photo editing, for the year 2 learners. Definite I must be, to have myself attended his talk. The guest lectures are programmed from 5 to 7 in the evening. An arrangement has already been made by having the timetables crossed checked. Hence, I will be attending his lectures on Tuesday and Thursday.
As a foreword to the subject, we were taught the dissimilarity between Photography and Photojournalism, which I thought was alike. Well, photography is considered an art, while photojournalism is telling stories with pictures or communicating with photographs. Photography basically talks about being artistic while photojournalism is about conveying information. The classes are going to be out of the ordinary, I suppose.
With the opening to the composition of photography, it had me realize that the pictures I took followed none. Terribly, I have it all posted on my blog :p Taking picture is not only about capturing moments but to be able to see, not just look at. Probably, I have only been looking at. :( I took pictures everyday but knew nothing on how to. Truly, I am with a hope that I will have my eyes trained to SEE rather than LOOK at, so that I can take better pictures.
Thank you for visiting my page. Please do trip again. Have a wonderful week ahead!
