TIP OF THE WEEK: “Play to the strength of the moment.”

NPPA Workshop: “Play to the strength of the moment.”

A simple one today….This tip comes from the National Press Photographers Workshop. It’s about understanding the situation you’re in and what’s important to do when.

“Play to the strength of the moment, if the band is playing press record, if the light is fading take the images and interview later.”

What the quote is trying to explain is not to be interviewing while the story is taking place. Understand that sometimes you may even have to cut the interview short or postpone it. Prioritize in the field.
