Yesterday, I had the privilege of covering my first Presidential appearance. I haven’t covered politics on a national scale like this before, so I didn’t quite know what to expect as I drove up to the Veteran’s Memorial Park in Manchester, New Hampshire. That was part of the fun of it.
My access was limited to the media riser directly in front of where President Obama was speaking, so I didn’t have much freedom to roam through the site. Still, I tried to work some different angles a move around to mix things up a bit after I got the head-on shots of the President that I needed.
All in all, I’m pretty happy with what I got for the first go around. I’d love to continue to work these type of events in the future. Regardless of your political beliefs, being in close proximity with the POTUS is pretty exciting.
