Things I Learned at the Southern Short Course in News Photography (yes, from back in April)

There's no such thing as a lucky shot. Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.

A good photo will:

1. Show people something new they've never seen before.
2. Show people something usual in an unusual way.

Photojournalism differs from photography in that it is primarily about access and follow-through.

My goal? To make people see pictures, not just look at them.

Sometimes unpreparation meets opportunity.

I like No. 1. Most of my good photos are just dumb luck or happy accidents.
