I'm always one to enjoy "cute beat" type assignments. And when they're during the hours of awesome light, I'm even more excited to shoot them.
Lately, I've been really busy working for The Missourian. I have had a ton of assignments lately (which are queued up to be blogged), a lot of which are on the same day. This is awesome, especially because I've had a lot of really cool assignments, but it also means that I've become a master at shooting quickly.
I shot this particular assignment in about 30 minutes. I know this is just the nature of working at a daily newspaper, so I'm kind of taking it and making it a challenge. I want to shoot as many great images as possible, though get the one that I know will run. And I am trying to take time to play and "get weird," so as to make myself happy.
So lately my challenge to myself is to see how many pictures I can get to run out of the shortest time possible. I got a six-photo gallery out of this assignment, so I was pretty excited about that.
I don't want to shoot lazy pictures or "easy pictures," so I think my next challenge is to just keep playing, get different kinds of pictures. And maybe see how many of those can run!
