Experimenting with mobile journalism

My experience with feature hunting with only a smartphone.

I would describe this assignment as an informational experiment for myself. My phone is very handy to me so that was no problem. I shoot many pictures of my family, friends and overall life with my iPhone. I have to say the biggest part of this assignment that challenged me was choosing the feature. I will explain the process of my thinking and actions throughout the following:

To begin, I started backward on this assignment. I chose to do my street photo assignment first. There was not much of a reason behind this besides the fact that I already had an event in mind, but the timing was off. I was born and raised in Flint, MI and I had been thinking about the city so I thought that this would be the best opportunity to visit.

Lately, there has been a lot of negativity surrounding my hometown with the Flint water crisis, new Netflix documentary “Flint Town”, and led being reintroduced through our pipelines. I figured that my “street photo” would be the perfect way to showcase something positive in Flint– the Flint Farmers’ Market. Not to be biased, but the Farmers’ Market is my favorite place so far on this planet.

People visit the Flint Farmers’ Market at 300 E. First St. on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 in downtown Flint, where more than 50 vendors buy, sell and trade local goods.

Next, I will share my experience with my still photo/video project where I cover the March For Our Lives protest in Detroit. To be continued…
