This evening I went to a basketball game (my first ever) with a couple of friends from my journalist class (Kajsa, Silvana, Hanna & Linda). I had decided to try out sports photo journalism, and to see if my lenses would be of any use at an indoor game.
In the end I managed to get a few decent shots. My friends encouraged me to try and sell the photos to the local paper in the city of the team that lost (Länstidningen Södertälje), so when I got home I called them up. Said I had pictures of one of their players on a stretcher. And that was that! I’m getting 800 SEK for it, about $ 110, which feels great considering I only really went for fun!
Hopefully I’ll be able to see the picture tomorrow when I’m sorting the morning newspapers at school. (I’m on duty this week!)
Edit: Due to internet bit-rot, the links here seem to have gone dead. Here is the photo I sold:
