I took a series of photo's at a gig my son's band played last week. That is not journal-worthy though! But, having sorted through and picked some keepers, I wondered where to put them up.
These made it here, as studies of people.
The rest went up on a Facebook album
, since that is where they will be most relevant.
That got me to wondering -again- about the the difference between dA and other picture sites. I have tended to subscribe to the "post the best of the set" philosophy for dA. I have only rarely had a wider audience interested in images that suggested posting somewhere else. Normally, I can share either physically, or with someone who will do the Facebook thing for their organisation. I went through a phase of trying photo-essays, and I still have a couple of those on the back-burner, but I'm now a little unsure where the boundary lies.
So do people think that one should post up a whole story on dA, even if every image isn't stunning, or the story is journalistically incomplete?
Another question: what is the place for in dA for photojournalism? There are a couple of groups in the space, and even a major category, but it doesn't seem to be a space that garners much focus or energy. And if the answer to journalism on dA is "not really", then my questions is "where does
it happen on the web?"
I'd love to hear thoughts and opinions!
