Here are a few images I created during Fresno’s shelter-in-place order. I figure I’ve gone out on assignments maybe once per day and only when I felt it was a worthy story and necessary to get images and video. I’ve been wearing a mask and staying as distant from people as I can. I don’t even mic people up – just using the shotgun mic on camera.
The Chinatown story was pretty cool and allowed me to be especially socially distant, since I shot it with the drone! Also the overhead shot of the boat on Pine Flat Lake. Although I was confronted by security on that one. They say they don’t allow drones because of national security concerns but I couldn’t find any documentation to show that.
Seems we are getting close to back to normal but I for one will continue to work from home, and wear a mask and stay away from crowds when I’m on assignment. I hope we do get back to normal but until these infection numbers drop, it’s not worth taking extra risks.
