I photographed a Jared Polis campaign stop as a self-assignment for my photojournalism students. This is a small selection of photos and by no means is it complete coverage of the stop...but...it gives a brief visual guide to my approach.
It's a quick look at my approach and we'll discuss my edit/processing workflow later. I did do a screen capture video with running dialog as I edited and will put together a tutorial on my deadline editing approach.
Carrying two cameras allows me to shoot a long lens (70-200mm f2.8 Nikkor Zoom) and my Fuji X-Pro 1 with a fixed focal length ("prime lens") 18mm f2. The zoom allows for tight shots and with the APS-C sensor setting on my D800 I was able to crop like a 300mm for a shot like this one of candidate Jared Polis.
I liked the triangle composition of this shot. I also really like Hickenlooper's boyish grin and put my focus on him.
For this shot I chose a high angle. I put the viewfinder into a "live view" mode allowing me to see the image on my LCD while holding the camera above my head and pointing it back down.
Keep your eye sharp for detail photos when you're photographing. I noticed John Hickenlooper fine tuning his notes and shot tight. I especially like the word "believe" in sharp focus - a nice little bonus!
Look for more intimate moments...behind the scenes, so to speak. I converted this last group of images to black and white simply because I wanted to focus on faces and emotions.
