Photojournalism: Assignments 01-03

So here I am with a travel blog and amateur skills in both writing about the places I go and in photographing them. I’ve been a frequent offender of the automatic function on my 10.2 megapixel Sony A200 D-SLR–and by frequent offender, I mean that I have never used the manual settings. Ever. Like, since I bought in in 2004 or something.

In any case, luckily I am a journalism major and am enrolled in what seems to be a spectacularly enriching photojournalism class. Here, we’ll document my assignments and thus, my progress.
