Dancers and goats

I have had the opportunity to shoot a variety of events, people, and places during my month at the Gazette. I am going to try to spend the next few days uploading a few of my assignments and favorites. These two assignments were very unique and I really enjoyed shooting. One was a couple that raised goats in their front yard for their milk to make cheese and soaps. The other was a dance/painting collaboration. The artist, Marlene, painted while dancers Beth and Margaret performed in front of her. Marlene created landscape paintings while incorporating the dancers’ movements into the work.

GoFundMe and SSAX 2013!

In an effort to raise money for Sports Shooter Academy X I created a GoFundMe page! I am beyond excited for this wonderful opportunity to attend the academy, but being a college student, the costs are going to be a large obstacle. I hope that finances do not keep me from going to this wonderful workshop. Please donate if you can, even a little bit.

Looking forward…

I have spent the day (and several before this) packing and getting ready for school. During all of this my mind began to wander and I began thinking about what I have to do/look forward to this upcoming quarter. Despite not having any sort of photography class this quarter, I have already started to think about Dawn To Dusk, an event held annually where photographers wake up early and have to shoot a certain theme/topic in a certain amount of time. It’s very fast-paced and exciting. I decided to post what I did last year during this project.

“The Ohio University Women’s Crew team rows in from an early morning practice at Stroud’s Run State Park in Athens, Ohio on October 22, 2010.”

This was taken extremely early and it was quite cold. I feel the shot that came from it was well worth it.

On a portrait kick…

Maybe it’s because I’ve been doing my little brother’s senior portraits for my mom. Maybe it’s because I have been in more portrait classes than photojournalism classes lately. Anyway, whatever the cause may be, I have really been into portrait taking. Of course, this doesn’t mean I’ve totally abandoned photojournalism, but here’s another post of some more portraits from the past.

This was a north light portrait of an artist. The assignment was from the portraiture class I was in Spring Quarter ’11 (see the post before for more). It was fun to shoot and the natural light is gorgeous. I’ve always been a fan of simple or natural lighting.

Attempt #1…Here we go!

These are just some of my favorite shots from my portraiture class this past quarter (Spring ’11). I really enjoyed the class even though it is technically a commercial photography class. It taught me a lot about thinking about light. Click on each image to see them individually at a larger size.

Scanned Film Image

This image was from our “Alternative Process” assignment; shoot a portrait with anything but our DSLRs. I decided to go with a grungy look. I shot with the cheapest disposable camera I could find and used a one-hour photo processing lab.  I then scanned the image and edited it using some warming filters in photoshop.
