Stop overthinking photographic situations

I received an email from a photographer in the community, asking the following question:

“I am seeking some information, much of it probably technical in nature, but not totally, on just how photojournalists approach their assignments when it takes them into a congressional committee hearing, for example. With the maddening variety of interior lights, I see so many of them do NOT use flash (probably cannot in those congressional hearings for sure) so I am wondering how they approach their shoots from a technical aspect of their cameras: aperture settings, ISO, shutter speeds, etc. etc. to get the excellent results that they do. 

I have tried to research this information in a number of different sources but with no luck. 

If you could provide me with any guidance in this area and/or suggest other resources to utilize to obtain this information, it would be GREATLY appreciated knowing how very busy you must be. 

Thanks very much for whatever assistance you can provide!
Don”

I hope that this video helps answer the question and inspire all photographers to stop overthinking a situation.
