How photography connects us ...

My blog is intended chiefly for the Herald's local audience, but at times I'd like to use this forum to raise our citizens' awareness about great photojournalism by posting links and embedding media.

This is a presentation by National Geographic Director of Photography and Visuals David Griffin. National Geographic remains one of the best sources to see truly great photography, and no one sets the bar higher for their standards. Here, Griffin demonstrates the power of still photography in its ability to make connections between people and the world around them. It lasts almost 15 minutes, but it's well worth the time. I'm inspired every time I view it and use it as an introduction to my photojournalism class at Georgia Southern University.

On a daily basis, I try go beyond the superficial whenever I'm shooting an assignment for the Herald. It's a high bar, indeed, and my level of success varies greatly.  But it's a great standard to strive for.

    I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
