The project I will be doing is Spot News. I will be shooting the Swim Championship which is hosted campus February 10th, 11th, and 12th. By photographing this event I will be able to photograph the different teams, different events as well as awards. By me photographing these all three days it will allow me to create a story of what happened throughout this event.
I will need to contact the swim coach to see if I’m allowed to photograph the event as well as the NEAC director. Some of the equipment that I will be to prepare will be batteries, flash, camera, lenses, memory cards and research and go to the location of the event to check out the lighting and environment situation. I will need to make sure all of my gear is ready and functioning correctly as well as everything being charged. I need to make sure that I will be available to go and take the time to capture well rounded photographs of the event.
My goal with this assignment is to understand the the and master capturing the moment happening in front of me without changing anything. I want to master the fundamental parts of documentary and photojournalist photography. I will need to make sure I get a good variety of swimmers as well as different angles and different shots( close up, medium, and wide angle). Swimming is a very quick sport with lots of water and equipment doesn’t like water, but I need to make sure I get the shots I need and that may need lots of shooting to be able to capture the swimmers faces and waiting for the timing of when they take a breadth.
