Originally, I was going to tell the story with more modern elements of Ybor City due to it being a historical city, but then decided that that would be too broad of a subject. However, walking around the campus these past few weeks gave me another idea for my story. My photojournalism story will be on the different types of stairs that can be found on HCC’s Ybor campus.
The reason I thought of the idea for this story is because there are so many unique stairs on this campus, in the building our class is in alone. There are plenty of very standard stairs around campus, but there are also things like multicolored stairs and stairs that different clubs have endorsed themselves on and stairs with different motivational text painted on them.
Doing a photojournalism story on the different types of stairs may give a more human feel to the campus instead of it feeling like a plain building you just come to for school. It will actually feel like students play an active role on campus and can give it a human touch, even just through making the stairs less drab. It isn’t the most exciting photojournalism story, but it could still tell an interesting soft news story.
