Kids Fishing Derby 4-H benefit
This was pretty straight forward, photograph kids catching captive fish. The main issue was that the light was coming from the lake and the participants were mostly facing away from the light. No matter though, because I could not get between the participants and the light without going swimming. The light got a bit better later in the assignment. When I did finally get between the subjects and the light my own shadow started getting in the way. My wide angle zoom proved to be the best lens for this job. I did not like walking out onto the wobbly dock with all my expensive camera gear.
