Every assignment has an image to be made, some are just harder to find than others.
I was recently on a community news assignments sending me out to Laurel, Md. to make images of a Special Olympics of Maryland fundraiser.
Local police officers camped out on the roof of a Dunkin' Donuts for 24 hours to help bring in patrons and donors to support the cause.
Unfortunately when I got to the location the building was horribly back lit. To get any detail in the building I had to completely blow out the sky. Fortunately it allowed for some interesting silhouettes of the officers on top of the roof.
Waiting for the lone cloud in the sky to make its way behind the building I fired off a few frames. Going a little warmer on the white balance made for a great color coming through the clouds.
I finished off the assignment by yelling up to the officers on the roof to get their personal information and trying to hear them over the howling wind.
Until next time, take care!
