Tough Assignment. Go to an illegal street racing scene with a bunch of paranoid gang members and try to come out with a good image. That was the scene last week while shooting a gig for The Sunday Mail in the UK. I rode with 2 undercover police officers to a street race in Ontario, CA, got out and immediately got the "no peeecture" salute from just about everyone there. It's definitely a challenge when you only have one night to get there, make people feel comfortable, and somehow gain there trust.
