Videography for All?

[OS News has a nice post]( about how the video “scene” has opened up to amateurs in the same way that photography has — pointing out that much of what resides on Flickr is “amateur” only in that the folks doing it are not getting paid to do it. The skills and techniques and subject matter are the same as professionals. (The contrarian in me wants to argue that the real opportunity here is to change the nature of photography, to make it more interesting than conventional professional photography which itself was modeled on fine art paradigms — I would argue that the blend of fine art photography and photojournalism combined with passion for place is what sets my aunt’s photography, Tika Laudun, apart from others.)
