“My mentor actually let me take a camera around the event and shoot by myself. She of course showed me how to work the camera, but after that she released me out into the wild. I also did a lot of the panning back and forth from shots with the still camera during the speech. I definitely still have some work to do, but all in all I was pretty darn happy with myself seeing as how it was my first time. I thought I was just going to be watching, but I’m fortunate that she let me get in and get my hands dirty.”
