Photo of the Week 12/3/11

On last Friday’s meeting, we talked about ways to find stories and things to shoot.

One place to go is Rochester’s Community Wishbook. You’ll find a ton of groups in the Rochester area and ways to get in contact with them. Especially when working with charities, it’s important to know that what you are doing is for the right reasons. Some places have felt hurt when they let students come in and work, and as soon as the students (or professionals) are finished with their stories, they leave and never give prints to or communicate with the groups again.

The PJ faculty are also good resources for story ideas. Prof Loret Steinberg, for instance, has lived in Rochester for a long time.

Another good spot is the Democrat & Chronicle’s Events page

For sports, check out Section V and High School Sports.Net

We had a tie for POTW this week, even after we revoted. Congrats to Jackie Connor and Jonathan Sanger!
