My first night taking pictures as a free lance photographer for the local newspaper was very productive. The job wasn’t officially finished until I dropped off my work at the newspaper offices. After having breakfast with a friend, I headed that way and entered a nearly-vacant office suite. There was one other person there and she obviously was hard at work on an assignment.
I tried taking the memory card from my camera and using it to upload the pictures, but their card reader didn’t seem to be working. The editor had told me they sometimes had issues with it. I had brought what I thought was the connecting cable to link my camera to the computer, but alas, it was the wrong one. Luckily for me, there was a cable right there in the work area and I was able to figure out it was the right size and type.
I am thankful that I have computer experience with the school system. The operating system is quite similar to the one used in a classroom setting. I quickly was uploading the pictures from my camera to the folder we had created on Friday. Before I knew it, the transfer was complete and I could be headed out to return home.
So the first assignment is officially done…pictures taken and delivered. I did text the editor to let him know and he returned a “Thank you!” text. I don’t know when the photos will appear online. To be honest, I’ve already checked four times and they haven’t yet been posted. I’ll provide a link once they have been.
