Live media

In seeking methods of creating closer access to topics that readers and viewers desire, I saw the birth of a calf at the State Fair of Texas as an opportunity for readers to see the Fair up close by initiating a Facebook Live. In an unusual role of speaking directly to the viewer, I aimed to provide accurate information throughout the birth of the calf by recounting knowledge of the Fair, livestock and the fairgoer experience all while interviewing the cow's caretakers. (I also shot still pictures of the birth, using two light stands throughout. See here.) (Andy Jacobsohn/The Dallas Morning News)
