Link Wednesday V

My link today is an extremely moving video shot by Travis Fox for the Washington Post that Tom Kennedy showed at Photonight last week. It shows Kennedy’s idea of visual journalism–that it should put faces and human emotion on reporting, instead of just text, names and numbers.


Jumping on our new reader submitted photo posts, my link this week is an interview with travel photojournalist Robert Caplin. He gives some tips on how to shoot like a pro without spending thousands on equipment.
