Covering Memorial Day in a new way

I think I’ve worked the past seven Memorial Days and I always take photographs at a Memorial Day service. I love it. There are patriotic songs, airplane flyovers and lots of red, white and blue.

This year I did something a little different while covering the service at Resthaven. I made a video using stills, video footage and audio from the event that captures it in a different way than the year’s past when I was only shooting still photographs. The new world of multimedia journalism is allowing me to cover events that I’ve shot every year in a new way.
