How to Illustrate Allergies
What’s an OK (and kinda boring) way to illustrate tree pollen for our story Rain, Warmer Weather Triggering Allergies ? Take a photo of a tree in bloom. What’s a better way? Get a photo of a bee picking up all that pollen.
I have to admit I didn’t plan on taking a photo of the bee. I was planning to shoot a flowering tree branch hanging over a sidewalk in downtown Chandler. The connection of photographing a bee for a story on pollen and allergies didn’t dawn on me until I was almost done with the shoot. I was about to walk back to my car when the motion of few bees buzzing around a branch caught my eye. It was a head-smacking moment when I realized that was THE shot. Going through the edit I was happy with this photo and glad the buzzing had caught my attention.
