Early Saturday morning I got to play war photographer. A group of guys who meet in the middle of nowhere in Bowling Green and play airsoft. And not with plastic, pump action guns from Wal-Mart. Hundred to thousand dollar equipment, with real war game tactics, radio chatter, ranks, the whole nine yards. I didn't know what to expect when I stepped on the battlefield, but I hope within the next few weeks I can go back and get some more interesting shots.

Six Degrees

Here is our first real assignment for PJ. We had to take six portraits that were all connected in some way. Whether it was through something large like a church or a group, or they just all knew all the other people. I went with the latter.

First Day of Picture Stories

So this week was the first week of classes and with the was the first day of Picture Stories. I am really looking forward to this class for a number of reasons. First, I am excited to be shooting almost nothing but picture stories the entire semester, and I am also looking forward to the copious amount of shooting I am going to be doing every week. That being said, I am extremely nervous about all of that. This class is going to kick my ass in every possible way, but I am hoping all the beatings I will take will make me a better photographer.

That being said, the first day of class we were sent out to find a feature about the weather. We got hit pretty bad with snow and ice, but not nearly as bad as the rest of Kentucky. This just slowed the town down for a day or so, as opposed to being a month without power like some places will be. This is what I came back with.
