I have a moral question for you.
This is an imaginary scenario, but I think it is fun to decide what one would do.
The situation: You are in the Midwest, and there is a huge flood in progress.
Many homes have been lost, water supplies compromised, and infrastructure destroyed.
Actually, with the climate changes recently, this could be more fact than fiction. But anyway, let’s move along with the imaginary scenario…
Let’s say that you are a photographer, and you are out getting still photos for a news service.
You are traveling alone, and looking for particularly poignant scenes.
Suddenly, you stumble across Donald Trump, and he is struggling to keep from being swept away in a raging river.
You have a choice of rescuing him or getting a Pulitzer prize-winning photograph of the death of a President.
What shutter speed would you use?
