30 Year Article Reflection [CM412]
After reading the article there are a few things that I agree with, and some that I disagree with. The main thing that I agree with is that as a digital community, we have to ensure that we are utilizing the internet in a positive, and productive manner. Doing this will help end harsh things such as cyberbullying. What I did not agree with is that I do not believe that we should completely be rid the use of some of our traditional ways.

Tips and Techniques to Conducting an interview.

1. Do your homework:
- Know who you're talking to and if you can, call and do a pre-interview. 

2. Come correct, do NOT try to "wing it." Be prepared! RESEARCH!

3. Think like a journalist. Ask open ended questions, not "Yes or No" questions. 

4. Make your subject talk to you, not the camera lens. 
- Sit offset of the camera so that your guest feels comfortable and not awkward. 

Things to keep in mind:

- Head space
- Make sure the eyes are around 1/3 from the top of the frame. 
- If your guest uses hand gestures when they speak, be sure the hands are not rapidly moving in and out of the frame. 
- Keep in mind the background and surrounding areas.
- Lighting! [Good to use the three-point lighting system] - Key Light (Top Left when looking at the guest), Fill Light (Opposite to Key Light but set lower directly beside the guest on right side), and Back or Hair Light (to separate the guest from the background).
