Photojournalism Tip #4: Different Types of Assignments (Maya)

For the next few blog entries I'll walk you through different types of assignments.

AN EVENT:

The right equipment is essential for capturing an event. For events it is best to use a wide-angle lens because their breadth enables you to capture lots of information in one shot. For example, you can highlight that the audience is packed or that only a few souls showed up, both of which are important realities to capture when documenting an event. I typically shoot with Canon, when I shoot an event I bring a Canon 16-35mm or 24-70mm lens. For Nikon, I'll bring a 16-35mm or a 24-35mm. After you've arrived at the event walk around first to get a sense of the atmosphere and figure out what the event is about and to scout out some good spots to shoot from. Take photos of the people (preferably interacting or in action and not posed), the location, the highlights of the event or signs indicating who is sponsoring the event. You need to capture the event in one or two photographs, so try lots of permutations and you'll most likely succeed in giving the viewer a sense of what the event was like, which is, after all your goal. Like on any assignment – take LOTS of photos and MOVE around!



Have fun shooting,

Maya

The Coach Outlet chapter brought up things that I have heard from the pulpit and read in the bible. The chapter on Parenting offered a combination of good sense, street sense, common sense and book sense. The Coach Online Outlet chapter made me laugh out loud. The Woman to Woman chapter dispensed the kind of insight that we all want our daughters to learn. The coach outlet online entitled Words of Wisdom from the School of Hard Knocks makes suggestions that, if followed, may “soften the blows” for some people. In addition to the sayings, each chapter also includes an instruction life reflection.linsenquan9.11-3
