THE SITUATION TO CONSIDER:
You are a professional photographer and you and your family are on vacation in Hawaii. A major tsunami hits the island and there is chaos all around you caused by the severe flooding. The flood unfolding before your eyes is of biblical proportion.
THE DILEMA YOU HAVE:
You see a man floating in the water; he is fighting for his life. The man is doing everything he possibly can not to be taken under the water or be hit by the debris floating in the water. You move in closer and realize the man looks vaguely familiar. Suddenly you realize he is a city council member from your hometown who is also on vacation and the raging waters are now about to take him under.
TWO OPTIONS LIE BEFORE YOU:
1) You can save this person's life
2) You can capture a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo
THE SURVEY QUESTION WE WANT YOU TO ANSWER IS:
and please, please give an honest answer...
(a) Select a high contrast color film
(b) Go with the classic simplicity of black and white film?
