There are dozens of photo journals here on lj and every one is interesting and needed. But I wanted a place specifically for those of us that aren't just hobbyists and who aren't working professionals yet. major_photo is a place for current photography students (majors, minors, and those simply taking photo classes) to discuss their classes and compare their assignments, share tips, stories, frustrations… One day we will all be each others competition. But in the meantime we have the opportunity to help each other and learn along with each other. A global classroom. For those of us that make photography a career: Some of the people we share with here will be the peers we work with once leaving school.
