The three from the right, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, U.S. Secretary of HUD Shaun Donovan, U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Ca) at a Press Conference to promote a new bill that will help legislation that aims to make it easier for more people to refinance their homes, measures they said could put money in the pockets of 120,000 homeowners in Los Angeles and 800,000 homeowners in Southern California. Link to Los Angeles Times story.
Note: The young woman on the right with the green sleeveless blouse was the ONLY working still photographer at the event. And she was not with the LA Times. Pretty much sums up the sad condition of press photography.
PS: Working means they’re getting paid to do the job. I wasn’t getting anything from any organization.
I was always told to get wide, medium, and close-up photos. No matter what the shoot they (Those who tell us what to do.) wanted those three shots and they would then select which one to published. Well I got no boss and so I can’t tell you which one to go with. Hell, you decide.
