Got from another forum, enjoy! Remember to answer truthfully! :bsmilie:

================

This will test your moral fortitude.
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 Florida, Miami 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 a 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 floundering in the water. He is fighting for his life, trying not to be taken down with the debris. You move closer. Somehow the man looks familiar You suddenly realize who it is. It's George W. Bush! At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to take him under...forever. You have two options - you can save the life of G.W. Bush or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the world's most powerful men.

So here's the question, and please give an honest answer (scroll
down)



































Would you select high contrast color film, or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white?

I will shoot with whatever that is loaded in the cam.

One shy question: Do I pass the test?

why bother to shoot? Who cares about photography at that moment when people are dying? Unless I can't help in any physical ways, i won't be using the camera.

I'm sure you'll help, as it will take too long for you to go borrow a camera :) kekekek

1st question: shoot or save.
Answer: Shoot. Hey! George is a professional, he'll understand that I'm working for a major press and it's my job to record his last moments. Anyway, if I save him, the secret service may want to bumb me off for putting them in a bad light.

2nd question: colour or B/W
Answer: Both of course! I'll shoot first in B/W as I think most Pulitzer Prize winning shots are done on B/W. Than I'll shout at him to swim back to where he was before and let me shoot in colour so that I can sell both colour and B/W version to other press and stocks guys. :devil: :devil: :devil:
