I'm in several clubs at my school that I'm in for one reason: photography. These include the yearbook committee, an art magazine, and the school newspaper. "Well, Pat, that's great! You get to take your passion into the monotonous prison that most call school," you say. Well, yeah, that's all fine and dandy, but I have several problems: 1. I'm not the most liked guy in my school, which can cause problems when I'm trying to get pictures. 2. I'm a freshmen. And few like freshmen bothering them trying to get their pictures. :meh: 3. I'm not rich, and I don't have a massive telephoto because of that fact. So I'm going to have to be right in people's faces, especially at sport and outdoor events. I'm working on funding for a 55-200 VR lens. So, how can I combat these problems? I'm hoping that people will get used to "that twerp with the camera", and will just deal with me.
