I'm taking a photojournalism class, and i'm fucking miserable. I just can't seem to wrap my head around the idea of shooting things without a purpose, that could or would have meaning later... For example, the instructor says: I'm toast. my mind goes blank. How the FUCK do you shoot something awesome, but for no apparent reason? Jesus, I hate this class. I really want to get better at the 'photojournalistic' style of photography, but I can't figure out how this bullshit is helping.
