I found this assignment difficult mostly because of the natural sound. Since my reporting was all on a boat, I had difficulty capturing the natural sound. I got good audio of the boat engine powering up and running, the water splashing and the volunteers talking. But other sounds I tried to capture, like the garbage going into the bin, were unsuccessful because of the strong winds on the boat. This wind ruined alot of my sound. This is the one thing I found most challenging.
