I wanted to practice the techniques used in photojournalism. What I attempted to do was document this event so that the camera would tell the story. I got close to the front and shot about 400 photographs. I was going to display ten of the best shots, captioning them to narrate the event. I played around with camera settings, used both manual and automatic, and flash/non-flash shots, but none of the shots came out clear enough to use. Even though the pictures didn't come out like I intended, I kind of like the blurred lights and abstract motion.
