I went to the pre-release party for "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" at Auntie's Bookstore to shoot a still photo for page one of the newspaper. After seeing the throngs of Potter fans, many dressed in costumes, I ran back to my car and grabbed my video camera. It was just to good to pass up. There was so much passion for author J.K. Rowling and her "Potter" books.
I like this video, especially toward the end when the excited fans get their hands on the book for the first time. This is why I am beginning to like shooting video over stills. The sound of people's reactions are better than anything I could shoot in a still photograph.
