Behind-the-Camera of Photojournalist Nic Coury in Monterey County, California.

March 5, 2009

The Mayor.

Today I shot the Salinas mayor Dennis Donohue at our office. 

As with the chief Ortega photo, I wanted a very simple, very effective image and I think I captured that.

I had a SB-800 to his right through an umbrella at 1/4 power zoomed in a bit and had my camera at f/8.

I like his hands here and his demeanor is a bit more serious than he has in the public aura. If you've been following the news in Salinas, it's a telling photo. Take that as you will.
