Medical Mission

Post by pop511 » Thu May 31, 2018 12:33 pm

Returned home from another medical mission. As always a lot of hard work and fun.
I got the local police to arrest their captain for a "police shoot". He's the guy in the middle, you can just make out the pips on his shoulder.
After work on our last night we were treated to a cultural show.
Part of it was Rap dancing from the high school...And yes I did accentuate the blue floodlights.

These are just flat-out terrific. Wonderful. I especially love the dancers, and the medic making the heart sign. I can see her enormous smile in her eyes alone. (OK)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Rambling:
Top picture was of an Anesthetist I grabbed her for a quicky away from the Op. Yes we do have students in their final years, but they learn so much under pressure, but the team is mainly made up of highly specialised doctors from university and major hospitals. All give up their time to do this work free.
Patient; To have a hernia removed. You can just see another team to the right on another table. There was another team on my left but out of camera.
Police; Long story and I suppose it started on the ferry on the way to the island. I went to the bridge and fooled around with the crew and captain, suggesting if he doesn't want his picture taken, we'll throw him overboard. Anyway we were laughing that much I am surprised the ferry got to the island in a straight line. As a photog I learned so much in that short space of time. If you have a good time. so will your client(s). Check your area. Light direction. Exposure...List goes on doesn't it. I used the same method for the police. I first suggested that if the captain didn't want his picture taken, we'll arrest him. Of course without guidance they all wanted to line up single file. Pull their hats down over their eyes. Officer on extreme left had a phone in his hand. You can see what else I did by looking at the pic. They were on duty providing security to officials and the 100 or so public...So yeah worked hard and fast, but made it fun for all. Last pic taken with me sitting on the floor. There were seats and tables behind me, so most of the shots, taken from the floor, or laying down on the stage.
Above: No I am not telling all here how to suck eggs. I suppose it was written out to support what I had learned, and for you to have fun at this silly old bugger.
On a more serious moment of introspection. I now find myself watching ops very closely and asking all sorts of questions relating to what had just been done.
Two more trips coming up. August and next March.

What a great series! You’ve captured a broad view of the medical mission and its community connections, from serious to lighthearted, proud to concerned. That shot of the dancers is terrific, love your enhancement of color, which makes the shot so special. Your other captures are high quality too,, and I trust you are sharing them with your subjects. They’ll love them!
