Feature Friday // Giles Duley: Half man, Half camera

Wow! I just finished watching this awesome  TedTalk by Giles Duley. In light of our new photojournalism class starting I think this presentation speaks loud and clear about an awesome service you can provide as a photographer. It’s so true that the more you make your life about other people and serving them, the more God is able to use you for His glory, because it’s ultimately about Him! 

Our DPJ class has been doing assignments called “Meet a Stranger”. Each week they have as a photo assignment to go out and meet a new person, photograph them and get their story. Sounds scary and cool all at the same time right? Check out their blog posts about meeting strangers in their town.
