As of today, I have completed my first week of internship with the Tribune-Review.
So far, I have learned some great tips from the photo staff led by chief Barry Reeger. In particular, feature hunting is an art that I hope to get the hang of in the next several weeks.
My only assignment today was to photograph a very slow-paced girl’s softball game in California, Pa. Afterwards, I drove 45 minutes back to the office, worked up my photos and decided to explore. By that time it was dusk and since my shift didn’t end until 10 p.m, I wondered around Greensburg–a part of Pittsburgh that’s still new to me.
I heard of Peach Plaza Skate Park and decided to photograph skaters in the sunset as a way to practice layering techniques Barry had coached to me. It’s an average feature, but it’s a start to my learning experience.
