This series was was a practice in event coverage for my Elements of Photojournalism class. The assignment was to create a five take edit of an event showing the full scope of the event from beginning to end, while also trying to achieve visual variety. Every year The Keybank Rochester Fringe Festival hosts a Silent Disco, a dance where attendees choose from three channels of music to be played through headphones. Every person can have a personalized experience, but still have a great time with friends. This event had a lot of visual opportunities-- I only wish I was able to stay longer!
