Remote Camera at the Capitol
Gov. Brad Henry is joined by state lawmakers in applauding for First Lady Kim Henry after he introduced her at her seat in the gallery at the beginning of his State of the State message to the 52nd Legislature at the Oklahoma State Capitol, Feb. 2, 2009. Senators joined state representatives in the House Chamber to hear the Governor’s speech. By Jim Beckel, The Oklahoman
Staff photographers Jim Beckel and Chris Landsberger teamed up to get pictures as the Oklahoma Legislature opened a new session at the Oklahoma State Capitol in Oklahoma City on Monday. Jim had the idea to set up a remote camera behind Gov. Brad Henry to get a picture (shown above) that we haven’t seen before. Photographers are only allowed on the floor for the first five minutes of the session, then they are asked to retreat to the balcony. Without a remote camera, this picture would not be possible.
