Video from the Great Gatsby Gala

There's a big push on at the Observer to have video to go with our stories. I enjoy it, although there are times I'm hoping someone who reads lips isn't standing near me when I start shooting because it can be difficult to switch between taking photos and videos with my iPhone all while trying to write down notes. Sometimes I'll let my favorite cuss word slip out when I get frustrated with the process.

It makes me almost look forward to the day when we'll have microchips implanted on our bodies and all I have to do is look at something and think to myself "shoot video" or "shoot photos" and it will be done.

In the meantime, here's video I shot from the Great Gatsby Gala.
