Standard Stand Ups

My broadcast journalism students this week are shooting stand ups for their Trump/Obama person on the street (POS) reports.

These photos show the proper positioning of the camera, videographer and reporter for effective, high quality stand ups, in which the reporter is conveying information essential to the story.

We made sure the sun on this bright day is behind the camera and shining in the face of the reporter. You try to avoid having the sun behind the reporter as it will shut down the camera's iris and darken the reporter.
