Dallas F2017
Your assignment is to depict The Big D. Give me an impression of the size, the magnitude the depth and breadth of the people in Dallas from the fairgoers to the tourists to the shop owners to the people who work and play downtown. Maybe you work your way over the State Fair that closed last week and go behind the scenes.

Go beyond the superficial.

Don’t just think of this as having to be of a person, but it should include people and you should work to tell their stories — with additional information (including their names) in the captions. This is photojournalism, after all.

If you want to have a little more fun, try to interpret the topic in a little more abstract way. For example, your concept might be “Big Tex” or “Forever in the Big D” (with deference to Mark Chesnutt). Have some fun along the way and be prepared to explain what you were thinking at the critique.
There are no restrictions on where you can take your photos other than it must be inside the city limits of Dallas. No worries. That includes 1.3 million people, 386 square miles in the fourth largest city in America. It includes the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, Southern Methodist University, Balfour Publishing and the Sixth Floor Museum.

Don’t forget — your pictures must have been taken after 10:50 a.m., Thursday, Oct. 26 and before 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28. (Of course all laws still apply, so don’t go breakin’ laws. General ethical principles apply as well.)
