Week Three: Time Is Flying
By Tyla Barnes
It is week three, and I feel like time has gone by so fast! The Atlanta Voice has allowed me to take part in many different kinds of stories, which has given me the opportunity to learn a lot about photography and producing. This week, I got to anchor two segments of our weekly newscast, Voice News Now. I have been getting a lot more comfortable in front of the camera, which helps me understand what it takes to be an on-air talent. However, my favorite story that I covered this week was a press conference by Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms. I got a chance to practice my photography at the event which was huge for me. This was my first-time doing photography for the newspaper, and I was fortunate to get my photo in the paper alongside my cover story! I have had so many memorable experiences at The Atlanta Voice, it is bittersweet to be leaving in a week, but I will make sure I make my last couple days here count.
