Our broadcast class spent the first week learning everything we needed to know about DC – from meeting press secretaries, meeting house members , interviewing senators and rolling the camera gear around…..
Keep the dolly in front – at all times….
The tricky part was getting the dolly and the camera gear back on the escalator….the Medill Broadcast News Van was in the shop…..really.
Then we took our Senate and House TV Radio Gallery tour….I like the big dome part….I like taking pictures of domes…must be something held over from the eurotrip…
It’s a big place….but I think we’ll figure it out, soon enough.
We ended the week at a happy hour at the National Press Club….I took pictures….and found out later this weekend that I wasn’t suppose to do that.
