Man, am I ever glad to hear this. I run with a group of documentarians and I just don't have whatever it is that lets a shooter grab a capture of someone suffering and then think about the next shot. I always thought I was somehow deficient in that way. Hearing, "We're working to bring these people's suffering to light by documenting it" always seemed a lot like, "We'll point it out. You guys go actually do the work to fix it."
