Fang: Asheboro Copperheads Mascot
from Mandy Powers
These days photographers need to be well versed in more than just photography, which is why I ended up with more gear than I could carry at the ballpark on Saturday night. I had my camera, three lenses, two flashes, a light stand, an umbrella, my tripod, a large fill card, two super clamps, a sound recorder and a wireless microphone. What I really needed was an assistant, but I digress.
I was at McCrary Park in Asheboro to tell the story of Fang, the Copperhead’s mascot, for my final project in Small Format. I needed still pictures, ambient sound, and an interview with my subject to put together the video. As I have found over and over this semester, people are so willing to help me with projects, and the Copperheads are no exception!
After gathering the sound and images on Saturday, I spent Sunday putting my video together. It’s no masterpiece, but I really enjoyed the process and I can’t wait to make more videos! Below are some of my favorite pictures from Saturday.
Many thanks to Dakota Patterson, Fang himself, for being such a willing subject.
