Singin’ The Blues

While making some pictures, at the Howard Dean event, below… I whipped out my trusty Canon G9, and started to make some video… when I discovered the Dark Side of the “Photographer-With-A-Video-Enabled-Camera-Makes-Some-Video-While-He’s-There” thing… that, sometimes, the light is simply not adequate to make even the most minimal-quality video, and that no amount of “AWB” or “HDR” will fix it.
A Videographer would have walked into this situation with a couple of continuous lights, and not strobes. He or she would have someone help to capture sound…
All of which brings home what my Mother once told me… that you can’t be All Things, to All People, All The Time.

Paul Hodes, for US Senate… Hodes is fighting to win the Dem Primary, and then run against a very popular Republican, Kelly Ayotte, the former Attorney General of NH. This is Dean’s first appearance in NH since 2007. Dean first came to national prominence as a maverick candidate for the Democratic Party’s nomination… losing to Massachusetts’ Senator John Kerry… who didn’t do very well, in the General Election, himself…
