Photographing the 2020 Presidential Campaign

The B&H Photography Podcast has an interesting interview with Washington Post photographer Salwan Georges. Georges explains what it’s like to photograph a presidential campaign during a pandemic. He was tested often, wore a lot of masks and had to clean a lot of hotel rooms as he traveled the country on assignment.

Georges also had to deal with fogged viewfinders as a result of his masks. He ended up using the rear screen of the camera more than the viewfinder. The pandemic had a real impact on his work.
