From the Archive: Fireflies
This image has always stuck with me throughout the years. Not as something that I feel has a lot of editorial value, but serves to remind me of how important creativity is when trying to capture even the most simple things. This picture was taken while sitting on a farm in Indiana or Illinois (can't remember at the moment), and the fireflies were just going crazy. After numerous attempts of trying capture them in a single frame without much luck, I decided to just pan the camera with a low shutter speed. I really like the one or two streaks of yellow that streak across the frame. Is it art? Is it journalism? Not sure, but I like it.
