Words and Pictures

I like Larry Mills' series on junk yards. Being the organized sort, I'm fascinated by spaces that are in disarray. Some days I purposely stop myself from straightening stuff on my desk but in the end, I need clean space around me in order to think. But enough about me. What Larry doesn't have that would, IMHO, make this series better are captions or introductory text. To become a successful editorial shooter, your photos need headlines and words. What is so hard about doing that when putting together web galleries? While you are waiting for the phone to ring with an assignment, think of a headline, go shoot it, write a caption, sell.
