I was in Omak last week to photograph the Northwest Indian Youth Conference and found out the news angle would be that the kids would be able to do some activities at this conference they haven't been able to just because of the location. So I picked a few activities that were being done outside to show this.

The first place I went was the archery course where there were animal targets set up against a hill. When I got there, the kids were wandering around the targets and I made this image that I thought was interesting - but it didn't say much about archery.

I thought I would wait until they shot and make a photograph from the same angle. But when I saw the students racing up to the targets in excitement, I envisioned the scene from a totally different angle and after the next shooting, made this photograph.

I thought it was okay but wanted to try something to show the kids racing to the targets so waited for the next round and got this.

Nice try but still to close I thought. Waited for the next round and forced myself to shoot wider and earlier. For someone taught to shoot tight, I have to purposefully photograph loose.

This is what was published. I liked the feeling of the students rushing upon the targets and I liked that it shows the wide-open space of the conference, telling that part of the story too.
