Veteran’s Day Photographs – 2

Principles of photojournalism covering Veteran’s Day in Denton

Photographing someone from behind has to have a reason in photojournalism. So many times, new students in photography are simply afraid to be seen, in front, showing faces and getting that image. I always tell them, once you have that, go for the unusual – something like this image from Veteran’s Day 2011 – 11-11-11.

Veteran’s Day Photographs

Veteran’s Day on the Square in Denton Texas

There’s not a lot of good old school photojournalism left in journalism anymore. Out of fashion I guess, as newspapers and news outlets become focused on Dancing With The Stars and the latest weight loss trend.

Veteran’s Day 11-11-11

Once in Forever Veteran’s Day 11-11-11

There will be a lot of noise and a lot of people on the Square in Downtown Denton, Texas, tomorrow. I was talking to a local businessman and Vietnam veteran yesterday, on the location of another shoot related to 11-11, and he said there’ll be a Huey fly over. So that unmistakeable thump will just add to the feelings running through the dense crowds expected to converge on the Square.

I will be working there as well, and it will be great to be back in circulation with that crowd – doing my thing.
