PHOTO ASSIGNMENT: Candid interaction, emotion


Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson chats with Executive Director of Tacoma Community Housing, Liz Dunbar, before speaking at a “No Ban, No Wall” anti-Trump protest at Westlake Park in Seattle, Wash. on Sunday, Oct. 15, 2017.

Reflection: Two things that I wish I had done differently while taking this photo: I would’ve pushed my f-stop lower so as to blur out the background and focus the viewer’s eyes onto the subjects of the photograph. Additionally, I would have moved further to the right to try and capture the facial expression of Dunbar. However, I am overall happy that I captured this candid moment of a major political figure speaking with community members at a grassroots protest (though I do have the feeling that Ferguson realized that he was being photographed and held his smile longer than he naturally would’ve).
