Tomorrow all of us of the P.L.F. (Photographers Liberation Front) will be making not only a momentous decision, but one that could potentially haunt us for four years. I speak mostly to our brothers in the journalistic brigade, though all of us could be affected in many ways. The question is, who do we want to photograph for the next 4 years?
Who is most photogenic? Obama or McCain.
Do we want the textured and rugged face of ages past or a smoother face not unlike models we have seen many a time. Which one must we choose. This is critical for our well being because day after day we are the ones who have to focus in on these mugs. Because dammit we do important stuff and we can't get stuck having to photograph the same guy for 4 years of magazine cover after nauseating feel good fluff articles.
Decide quickly my PLF legions for tomorrow we must expose and frame the correct shot .
