Our community as seen by N&O photojournalists
How I got the photograph: I was working on anther story in Lumberton when I noticed a bright red shirt on a tractor in the soft afternoon light. I introduced myself to Baxter and photographed him using a 300mm lens and a low camera angle to clean up the background and isolate him in the composition. I used a Canon 1DX Mark II camera with a 300mm lens. The exposure was 1/640th sec at f/2.8 with the ISO set to 320.
