Today was day 1 of seminars! I went to 6 seminars in the course of the day. Most had to do with photo ethics, including what to publish, what to manipulate (and not manipulate), and how to capture good news photos (“Shoot first, ask questions later”). Todd Maisel, a photographer from the New York Daily News, was one of the speakers I had today, and it was amazing to hear his stories and see his work. He takes photojournalism to the next level. Another seminar I really enjoyed was the rights of the media, and how to exercise those rights.
Since meetings got out this evening, Liz, Laura, Kate and I visited the Empire State Building! Looking forward to a tour at the Associated Press tomorrow morning!
