Help Portrait Soundslide Presentation

Here is my second soundslide presentation for my Photojournalism II class.

This one features a project by the Help-Portrait organization. They help those who cannot afford photographs get professional shots done. In this particular situation, they were helping highschool seniors who simply could not afford their senior pictures.

      • Submission Field : The Help-Portrait high-school senior assignment was very interesting. Not only were there plenty of good photo opportunities, but I had the chance to work with professionals and learn some tips and tricks that normally would have taken years to acquire. My over-zealous approach to getting photos led to a bit of a quandary:  I had forgotten to obtain interviews!! Though I had a bevy of what I consider good pictures I had a problem. This proved to be easily rectified by narrating the majority of the presentation while using interviews collected by Emily Rhodes, a reporter for the Traveler.

        During the shoot, my primary lens began to fail. Though this was cause for consternation, I made due with my 50mm prime and other lenses. All in all, the shoot went well.

        I do need to learn a more streamlined approach to workflow. It takes me hours - sometimes over twelve - to sort through images (in, of course, RAW format) and edit them. That has been my major bottleneck as of late. Luckily, I did catch a glimpse of the editors and saw their skills. It all looks very doable and the learning curve should not be too difficult.

        Luckily I had an extra SD card with me. I somehow managed to fill my 32g card about an hour before the event was finished! ALWAYS CARRY MULTIPLE CARDS!
