For this website, I am the sole photographer and part of a team of 4 copy editors. I’ve never had either of those responsibilities before, but I’m ready to give them all I’ve got.
So far things have just started to pick up. I’ve been able to catch a “Rock the Vote” event for a few action shots, and I attended a debate viewing party with College Democrats in their State Street office. College Democrats have canvass events every Sunday, so I plan on joining in this weekend. I’ve been trying to do the same with the College Republicans, but getting ahold of them has proved much more difficult.
Part of the photo essay includes photographing some residents (besides students) to get an all-inclusive Madison take on the election. I plan to include shots of Obama’s campus visit photos of posters and pictures of people putting up lawn signs. As for editing copy, I just finished editing my first three pieces. Hopefully they’re good to go.
