A picture tells a thousand words. But if you're putting together a photo essay and you're dealing with one or more human subjects, add their recorded voices to your essay to bring your compositions to life. I found a good example from the video collaborative at ABC Open Western Queensland (Australia). Their interview of octogenarian Hilton Jackson is brought to life by his voice, commenting on his amazing collection of found objects, ranging from trash to treasures. Delve into photojournalism's practice of combining still images with recorded sound to bring your essays to vivid life.

Summer vacations for photographers are great opportunities for us to shoot more landscapes. Nature is dressing up in all its finery this time of year, and there are many aspects to capture in images. We found this informative how-to video of David Oliver sharing his tips and techniques for better landscape photos.
Are landscapes your favorite subject? What subjects do you like to capture in your work? Use the comments below to let us know.

The streets of Melbourne, Australia is a central subject for Aussie photographer Will Watt. You can see his work featured on the Melbourne Street website. In our featured video, provided by the always-excellent Shutterbugs group, Will talks about how he first became interested in photography (his tale will likely jar a few of your own childhood memories loose), what he loves about the streets of Melbourne, and how he likes to keep his work fresh and post a new photo each day on his website - this is a great goal for any photographer.
