Feature (Wild Art)

feature photography by matt lit

Feature images – also called “Wild Art” by my early Mentor Gary O’Brien are found images that capture a slice of life, a passing moment that might show incongruities, the humorous side of life, a touching moment. As I tell my photojournalism students, “It’s hard to say what makes a great feature photo but I know it when I see it!”

This is a collection of newer images and come from an array of shooting…the square images are from the Holga Toy Camera, some from portrait sessions and even weddings. Feature images show up at the oddest times. The key is always having a camera and an awareness of the world around me.
