I'm just finishing up my first 3 months as a news photographer, though it feels a lot longer. I'm enjoying the main functions of the job- shooting and editing. What gets me is that every day I get blamed for something out of my control. Today I tried to do everything in my power to watch my back and still i get yelled at because my pager is not working properly (it had batteries.) Basically I feel that no matter what the technical difficulty, it is the photographer that gets burned. One of the tape-ops decks are too hot and I have to explain and prove to the anchor that I did white balance and that, "It was not my fault." My question is these little battles come up everyday, and everyday I work my ass off climbing bleachers to get the best shot. Are these battles worth fighting for, or should I just let my video speak for itself? Do you vets have to deal with what I'm talking about? What's the key to achieving grace in these situations that so far just piss me off. If I sound green and naive its cause I probably am and would greatly appreciate any advice to change the situation.
