One-question Test
« on: May 15, 2009, 12:44:04 PM »
This may have already made the rounds, but just in case:

The One (1) Question Test

This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. By giving an honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally. The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which you will have to make a decision. Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous.

Please scroll down slowly and give due consideration to each line.


You are in Richmond Virginia. On the James River to be specific. There is chaos all around you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding. This is a flood of biblical proportions. You are photojournalist working for a major newspaper, and you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster. The situation is nearly hopeless.

You're trying to shoot career-making photos There are houses and people swirling around you, some disappearing under the water. Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.



Suddenly you see a man and a woman in the water. They are fighting for their lives, trying not to be taken down with the debris. You move closer. Somehow
they look familiar. You suddenly realize who they are. It's Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi!! At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to
take them under forever. You have two options: You can save their lives or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the deaths of two of the world's most powerful people.



Here's the question, and please give an honest answer...

Would you select high contrast color film, or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white?
It is what it is.......except when it isn't.

High contrast color film to truly capture the disbelief on their face when the main stream media lets them drown :-D

I'm going to be terribly Politically Incorrect here:

But it seems to me that regardless of which film you used you'd still have and black and white photo.

black and white is powerful for expressing shadow, light, and emotion.
color will go on every newspaper in the world.
be happy and make others happy.
