NOCC Walk to Break the Silence (General News)
For the general news assignment in my photojournalism class, we had to photograph some type of newsworthy scheduled event. I had volunteered to photograph the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition's Walk to Break the Silence on Sunday, September 9 and I decided this would fit the assignment perfectly. Since I was assigned specific areas to photograph by the NOCC project manager, I found it difficult to focus on what I wanted to photograph specifically. It was also nearly impossible to get names and speak with people since my responsibilities as a NOCC volunteer came first. However, I was happy with many of the photos I took and enjoyed covering the event. I think a few of my photos would have definitely benefitted from having names or getting a quote, so I realize the importance of that for the future.
