Photography and Melbourne's Marriage Equality Rally

A few weeks ago, I was part of a photojournalism workshop with Australian photographer, Rodney Dekker. Despite being relatively new to the medium, photojournalism is something I am passionate about. While my technical skills have improved, it was great to go beyond just aperture and shutter speed and get into shooting photo essays and editing in Adobe LightBox. Coincidentally, there was a Marriage Equality rally outside the Victorian State Library on the same day. While it proved a great scene to practice taking photographs, it is a sad reality that there is still a need to rally for something like marriage equality, when it should be a given.

Here are a few photos from the day, they're not the best, but they're a start!
