The Vernal Equinox is a point on the celestial sphere where the ecliptic intersects the celestial equator. The sun will reach this point in the next 24 hours. In other words, this is the location of the Sun at the moment the Northern Hemisphere begins the season that we call spring.
When the Sun reaches this point, it is directly above the Earth's Equator and so somewhere along the Earth's Equator at that moment in time, the Sun is directly overhead and so objects like flag poles and fence posts will not cast a shadow.
Finally, you ask "Can you please tell me both of those or even one of them?", however, you have only asked about Vernal Equinox. If by chance you are also interested in knowing about the Autumnal Equinox, then I can tell you that is also a point on the celestial sphere where the ecliptic intersects the celestial equator. Please note that these are the only two points where these two lines intersect. Anyway, when the Sun reaches the point known as the Autumnal Equinox it marks the beginning of autumn in the Northern Hemisphere and once again the Sun is directly over the Earth's Equator.
Between the first day of spring and the first day of autumn, the Sun is directly overhead points north of the equator, up to, but not exceeding the Tropic of Cancer, which is where it is on the first day of summer. Between the first day of autumn and the first day of spring, the Sun is directly overhead points south of the equator, down to, but not exceeding the Tropic of Capricorn, which is where it is on the first day of winter. Please note that both of these statements have been written from the perspective of somebody living in the northern hemisphere.

This takes more time to write, but is certainly worth it from an educational point of view.
how do i photograph the vernal equinox?
The vernal equinox is in the spring. What happens tomorrow is the summer solstice, or the longest day (light) of the year. There is nothing to photograph unless you are at an ancient calendar, like Stonehenge, In that case, be there at sunrise.
There are two solstices and two equinoxes per year. The equinox is the point where day and dark are equal, happens in March and September.. The solstices are the shortest and longest day., in June and December. Together, they are the basis for most of the world's religious celebrations.
I need information on vernal equinox in new orleans!?
the vernal equinox happens on the first day of spring, no matter where you are. you could be at the north pole, and have a 12 hour day and 12 hour night (actually, the sun would hover on the horizon the whole time, but if you lived in northern canada, it would be 12-12) the equinox is just where the tilt of the earths axis tilts in a direction parallel to the surface of the sun. I have no idea what else you want me to say.
