Everyday is a challenge in photojournalism.
Every morning I find out what I am shooting, but there is no guarantee that those assignments will stick.
Even if they do, the ways of assignments change. Such as BYU football practice the other day.
I am not sure what changed, but I wasn't allowed inside the ropes at practice the other day.
Every time I slipped under, a field enforcer would tell me I wasn't allowed to be where I was. I even explained many times who I was shooting for and that I was out of the way of spectators.
I became frustrated. I did my best to seek out the best vantage points behind the ropes and still do my job.
That's when I saw our video guy where we normally were able to be. So I ran out next to him. But since we're are only allotted around 30 minutes to shoot, I was running out of time on the field.
Despite being on the wrong side of this play, I felt good to get something this visual and the talk of the day of practice in such a short period of time.
A small victory for the assignment, day.
