Mayday 2005 - MLKP by JamesBardolph Mayday 2005 - MLKP by JamesBardolph
Mayday 2005, London.

This photo shows a HUGE improvement in my journalistic photography. The angle, the man in the shot, I waited ages for him to look in the cam. This photo is so significant in my development as a photographer. I'm ecstatic.

I know it's imperfect with the overexposure at the back of the flag, but I don't care. This shot is the most important shot I've taken to date.

I ALWAYS shoot in manual, I never bother with aperture priority or shutter priority. When the sun is going in and out of the clouds it's a bitch, but it's a challenge which is great.

"MLCP is a history; the history of an enormous freedom. This history has shown that the
political fight of the struggle for unification of communists, which is totally correct on the
point of theory and principles, is the most vital need of revolutionary development.
By the foundation of MLCP, the communist movement was carried further, and by that a new
and more powerful blow was given to hopelessness."

Imperfection doesn't matter.

Talking with my photo editor at the local rag, it won't come out in print. It's not artistic, so it doesn't matter. What is important is the look the guy gave you - when doing journalistic, you need the eye contact else it doesn't work. Look at all the examples of seminal journalistic work - they have the contact.
