Week 1 engagement journal

For this first week, our task was to go out and find a story and take corresponding photos to use in an online article to then post on WordPress.

There were no strict guidelines on what the story had to be, so I chose to photograph someone who is struggling with mould in their house as I have heard this is a very apparent and ongoing problem within the student community this time of year as some landlords do not take them as seriously as one would hope.  

I actively chose to have a person in my photo as it makes it more personal to the readers, and only plain photos of mould would not really draw the audience in as much in comparison to if there is a person in the photo.
