Mizzou Obama Rama!

With just 5 days remaining in the most important presidential race in recent memory, Barack Obama stopped by our humble town and spoke at our simple University. Over 40,000 came out to listen to Senator Obama's speech. The population of Columbia is just over 80,000. Many in the crowd, comprised mainly of students, began lining up before noon for the rally. This will be one hell of an election.

PhotoJ (Single Flash, 2nd take)

This is from my second attempt of shooting with flash and I focused mainly on bounce flash, being that I have a direct flash from the first take I liked. So this is my select for bounce and the last post is my select for direct.

PhotoJ (Single Flash, 1st take)

So this is my first attempt at real flash work and let me tell you, its a bitch! Direct flash is harsh and awkward to look at. I post again on this subject again on Thursday, but until then enjoy...or maybe don't. = )


I just want to preface by saying when I wasn't shooting I was working twice as hard as both of them at cutting wood...or at watching Dexter on TV. = )

So here is another assignment from my Advanced Techniques in Photojournalism class. Studio Lighting is still giving me some trouble, but I think I'm doing a little better

Roots and Blues Weekend

We all left the house, except for Stephen, who could not find any clothing except for boxers.

When will Iavora figure out that summer is over and it is no longer time for summer dresses?

Politics as Usual? ... Not quite

Immediately after the only vice-presidential debate at Washington University in St. Louis, MO, Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska spoke to a crowd of supporters gathered in the indoor stadium on St. Louis University's campus. I chose to tone these photos in black and white ... because the color was piss poor = ). I feel that my mistakes worked in my favor in these images and the black and white made them more dramatic and made me look at them in a different way, enjoy!

Moo-Dah Parade

I finally took some photos outside of the house! I also did some audio madness. The whole event was quite fun and everyone I talked to was super cooperative and nice.
