I absolutely do NOT envy any photojournalist who has ever or will ever be in the actual situation of photographing an active shooting event. I know it was just an exercise today, but at moments it seemed all too real. They did an incredible job making it look and feel like it was really happening.
These days I don’t turn down many opportunities to shoot. It was a nice day and the clouds were just right and, like always, I had my cameras with me.
