30-Day Work in Progress
Amanda spends a lot of time looking for jobs on the computer and submitting applications and resumes online. She is also an avid couponer and plans every trip to the store down to the penny. I have some shots of her preparing her list, sorting coupons and sorting her "free shelves."
Amanda also goes to the food pantry once a month for all food and once a week for bread and bakery products. I went with her on her monthly trip and I ended up getting too many shots I liked, as you can see by the numerous pantry shots in my selects.
At the beginning of the story I really thought I wanted to do a multimedia piece. Now that I've spend some time with her and have talked to her extensively about her situation, I really feel like I could write some amazing captions for these pictures. I thought hearing her voice was what the story needed, but I have so many great quotes and tidbits from her life I really think I can explain it better with stills and extensive captions.
