Photo Essay Review

A recent project I have been working on is a photo essay. It's a very unique way of writing an essay rather than, the traditional five paragraph paper. The photo essay expands your traditional writing skills with the use of having visuals. At first this project seemed like a great idea for me, and the reason for that is I really do not like writing five paragraph papers. The idea of having your photographs that you have taken be consider part of your essay was cool. Most of us takes pictures all the time, and put them up on different websites such as, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc. so, that part would not be so bad. After working on a rough draft, I seemed to get a bit confused and frustrated because it was hard to find a way to get an argument across through a series of pictures. It seem like even having a short narrative and captions would not get the argument across. Plus, this photo essay had to have the rhetorical strategies of ethos, pathos, and logos. May be the topic I chose is not a good one for this type of essay. People should buy cars for safety and not just looks. I still believe this type of writing is a great idea, and will be interesting how this project turns out.
