  As the end of the semester gets closer and closer all I can bring myself to think about is graduation. How exciting it will be to walk across the stage and receive the diploma that I have worked 4 extremely hard years to get. Well, no one tells you all the preparation it takes…

First Round of Multimedia

I took my first round of photos for my final project over the weekend. I met Quincy at the Columbia Riverfront to capture him running and working out at the outside gym. I had a lot of trouble getting crisp photos because of the time he decided to go. There were horrible shadows and the sun…

First Time in the Studio

This semester, I am not only taking Advanced Photo, but I am also taking JOUR 560, the capstone portfolio class for visual communications students, with Dr. Tara Mortensen. As a class assignment, we each were given the opportunity to take pictures in the new J-school photo studio. I have never used the studio, or had even…

My First Time Shooting College Football

Last year I had the opportunity to shoot my first USC football game with Professor Farrand. It was very last minute so I didn’t have the chance to check out any equipment from the J-school.
