This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. By giving an honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally.



The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which you will have to make a decision.



Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous.



Please scroll down slowly and give due consideration to each line.





THE SITUATION:





You are in your capital city.



There is chaos all around you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding.



This is a flood of biblical proportions.



You are a photo-journalist working for a top paper, and you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster. The situation is nearly hopeless.



You're trying to shoot career-making photos.



There are houses and people swirling around you, some disappearing into the water.



Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.







THE TEST:



Suddenly, you seesomeone in the water. Theyis fighting forthier life, trying not to be taken down with the debris. You move closer... Somehow, they looks familiar...

You suddenly realize who it is... It's your country's leader! You notice that the raging waters are about to take them under forever. You have two options:





You can save the life of this person, or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one ofyour country's most powerful people!





THE QUESTION:







Here's the question, and please give an honest answer...













Would you select high contrast color film, or would you go with theclassic simplicity of black and white?

Due to the lighting available during a huricane, black and white would probably be the best choice.

First you'd want to get real close to the person with a light meter so you wouldn't screw up the picture regardless of the film...

If I am an awarding journalist I would have two cameras around my kneck. One loaded with color and one loaded with black and white. I would ask them to hold the pose till I got both pictures taken. :D

I'd ask him if he could move a little closer to the bigger swirls and houses floating by before I decided on whether or not to shoot with color or B/W

Black and white to accentuate the drama and a slow shutter for accentuate the water flow.
