Light and Expression
I took this pic when Hud and I were both home sick. It rained for most of this day, naturally emphasizing our condition. When the sun came out in the late afternoon, we ventured out to our porch for some fresh air.......

This is a shot of hockey player, Tony Cross, who agreed to pose for a sports portrait that I am trying to work into my portfolio. I decided to give it a comic book character quality (below) using photoshop.
Dig it!

Photo Journalism Project Outtakes

Here are some things I did and liked but didn't use while working on projects for my photo-journalism class.

Coffee at Brats
Here is a detail shot I set up at Brats restaurant for my weekly layout assignment. I was really feeling this photo but ultimately I decided it looked too much like a detail in the vertical shot I used in my layout. I scrapped it for a weaker shot.

Farmer's Market Pig
This is an overall shot I was hoping I could use for another weekly layout assignment. I got to the market pretty early and there weren't too many customers while I was there. I like this shot but with no 'living' subject, it doesn't really tell any story.
F o o t B a l l

This is the only decent football shot I was able to get this past Wednesday at the Randolph County Middle School Playoffs. These are the South Asheboro Blue Comets facing off against the Randleman Tigers in Lee Jones Stadium at Asheboro High School. Not much action and it is cliche; but there is some tension, and it's sort of cool.
