Photographing for the Philadelphia Bar Reporter

Posted on: October 2, 2009

I covered an event for the Philadelphia Bar Reporter at the U.S Courthouse. There I photographed for the Continuing Education seminar for future attorneys where several prominent judges spoke about their own experiences in the courtroom. Since this was my first assignment that would be published, I felt alot of pressure to make sure the photographs were “magazine friendly”, giving a variety of angles, shots, and viewpoints.

I was told to try and photograph the audience members attending the lecture so i not only took a few close ups but also a wide shot of the whole group

I had a little difficulty with the lighting in the room and I did not want to use a flash since it would distract everyone, so i put my camera on night mode to allow for more light to come through

Although i prefer not to have individuals pose, I felt as though it was necessary since it was difficult to capture a during the actual lecture

The room in the courthouse was small and I was positioned in an angle where the microphones and the judges overlapped causing conflict in the photo.
