Getting started in Backpack Journalism

A backpack journalist is a person who takes his/her camera to a news event and uses it to document the events that take place. As opposed to taking a pen and notepad to document the events. For me, the best way to get started in backpack journalism is to get on the email list of left wing political groups. The reason for this is because left wing groups are more likely to hold protests.  One rule to follow for political protests is to leave your political beliefs at the door when you take your photographs and videos.
