Work updates

So, I've completed a month at work. Got my first paycheck:)
It's been very good so far. Over the past 3 weeks, we were trained in camera shooting, editing and writing & reporting. The next 2 weeks will be production and news gathering. Well, it isn't really new to me but yes, I haven't handled the Sony PD 170 before, so it was new in that sense. But the basic functions are the same in all cameras.
The faculty is great -all very experienced and the best part is that they all have an amazing sense of humour.Working at IBN is a pleasure. We saw a promo of the channel yesterday...looked very cool. I genuinely liked it. I'd also seen the channel logo and heard the music a few days back. The logo looked fine but I didn't find the music very catchy. I hope they get it redone.
During camera training we went out shooting to India Gate and to Old Delhi (Jama Masjid & Chandini Chowk) was great fun:) At the risk of sounding immodest, let me just say that I shot some good stuff that got universal appreciation:) It was awesome to get my hands back on the camera. I just loooooooooooooove to shoot!!!
My gym sessions got done a while ago and now I'm back to aerobics with Finesse. So, basically I just run from office to aerobics class and reach back home by 8:00p.m. I have to look for PGs in NOIDA as well...guess office should be shifting by this month end or first week of october!!!Ok, ciao for now...will write more later!
