One of our daily duties on the newspaper photo staff is to find "stand alone art," images that don't go with a story, but depict life in the county. With the push for on-line content, this requirement is now for video features as well. This is a bit of a challenge when the weather hits the extemes, but there is always something to be found.
I have always found that I can talk with anyone when I am photographing, and see photos when I am interviewing. I find the later to be true with video as well. I got a bit lucky today with the one quote.
