I was covering a Sarah Palin political rally in our small city of Williamsport, Pennsylvania, when I unexpectedly found myself in a sea of extremely enthusiastic people and photographers. You would have thought that a legendary rock star had just wandered out among the “audience”. Can you count the number of Secret Service agents in this photo?
This photo was taken on October 28th, 2008. It was shot handheld with a Canon EOS 10D using a Canon EF 35-350mm f/3.5-5.6L zoom lens, set to 35mm. The shutter speed was 1/125th sec. and the aperture was set to f/13. The camera’s ISO was pushed to 1600 to gain faster shutter speeds.
