What You'll Be Creating

While working on assignment, the deadline is constantly looming. Keeping organized will help you get your assignment in on time. It doesn't matter why: if you miss a deadline you are likely holding up the entire publication.

In this video tutorial from my course, Introduction to News and Editorial Assignment Photography, I'll take you through the process of filing a feature assignment, so that you can approach it without feeling daunted.

I'll be using Photo Mechanic in the tutorial, but the general strategies I cover will be the same if you're using other software like Adobe Lightroom. Andrew Childress has a good tutorial on how to use Photo Mechanic and Lightroom together.
