Video: Fried foods at the San Diego County Fair

With the blending of both and old media, today's journalists must know a little bit about everything -- taking photos, shooting and editing videos and writing stories. Here's a great example of trying something new from Lighthouse reporter Annie Shields. A good first crack at shooting and editing video. Great job Annie! Just remember: -Just like when you are interviewing a person for a print story, let the subjects finish their thoughts. Try not to interrupt during the interview. -Use a tripod when possible. If you're holding the camera, try not to shake it as much. -Use the rule of thirds - when talking to a subject, try to put them off-center and not in the middle of the frame.
