A look at the late, great 2011 Legislative session

OLYMPIA — Before I left for Olympia, Photo Editor Liz Kishimoto gave me a camera. A really good camera, with two very nice lenses.

Other members of The Spokesman-Review's prize-winning photo staff gave me some tips on how to use it because, well, it's been a few decades since Press Photography I in Journalism School when students were given a camera and a notebook and told to come back with something in both. Having spent much of that time working with some of the best newspaper photographers in the country (this is objectively true, the S-R has a trophy case to prove it), it's possible to pick up a few things by osmosis.

The thing I learned most was to always carry the camera. The second thing was, it's digital so take lots of pictures. There's a better chance that one will turn out, and you can wipe out the really bad ones so no one else ever sees them. 

Over the course of the session, some were published in the paper, and others wound up online. Here's a slide show from some of the images from the just completed legislative session.
