MIchael Robinson Chavez: Dharavi Multi Media

I met Michael Robinson Chavez at the Foundry Photojournalism Workshop in Mexico City. Not only is he wonderful photojournalist, but he's an easily approachable and open person. 

Take note of the techniques Ed Kashi pioneered in his multi-media story on Iraqi Kurdistan on MediaStorm. In some of the rapid fire sequences the framing doesn't change at all, so Michael was working with this technique in mind and set the camera on a tripod or a stable spot while repeatedly firing. In the sequence on the train, however, he shot hand holding the camera which gives a different effect, so this is something to consider when prepping for multi-media.

For some reason I could not upload the video, but you can find the link here.
