Just Keep Practicing!July 20th, 2013 at 1:28 pm by caitlynchastain under Interns
I was so excited because this week was my first week in the news department! I had definitely been waiting for this all summer. This week has not let me down at all, it has been amazing. I went out with reporters everyday this week and they have taught me so much already. I’m learning how to shoot and use different camera angles, how to present myself better while on cameras, and I am learning a lot to improve my writing skills.
Being able to go out with the reporters has been so much fun and very helpful. They have all been so nice and willing to help me out. In just this week alone, I have already shot standups for four stories. I also put together a package and learned a little bit about editing! I feel like I’m learning something new everyday and I cannot wait to do even more news stories.
It’s crazy to think that the summer is already over half way done but I will continue to gain as much experience as possible while I’m at WAVY. I look forward to trying to improve a little more everyday; I can’t wait for another week in news!
