Day 129 – Graduation 2009

May 9, 2009

Hillsdale’s Commencement for the class of 2009 was today! There were lots of hugs, laughs, and smiles.

Day 135 – Samford University

May 15, 2009

Correction: My post yesterday said that my uncle is getting his PhD from the University of Alabama. This is wrong. He is getting it from Samford University.

Day 136 – Samford Graduation

May 16, 2009

It was raining in Birmingham today, so I did not get any more shots of campus. I did, however, take some photos of the graduation ceremony.

Day 139* – Illum + Night Lights Collaboration

May 19, 2009

Tonight I met up with Michelle Wood and her friend (a.k.a. Night Lights on Flickr) to do some light graffiti. Michelle take photos in the Gwinnett, GA area, which is a little less than an hour away from my aunt and uncle’s house, so we decided me meet up while I was down here. We only had a few hours free tonight, and unfortunately tonight was the only night we could meet, so we were only able to take a few shots after we explored the area and got everything set up.

Day 140 – Smoky Mountains

May 20, 2009

I drove back to my grandparents’ house in Tennessee this morning, then we spent the day driving through the Smoky Mountains. We had a wonderful time! Here are two photos I took. More will follow in a few days when I am back home and have reliable internet access again.

Day 144 – Subjective Burger

May 24, 2009

I went and shot a round of trap and a round of skeet this morning. The people at the Gun & Reel club on Middle Ridge Road are very nice and super friendly! I like shooting there.

Day 148 – Scenes Around Steele

May 28, 2009

I spent part of the day taking photos around Steele High School. Here are a few shots of the Senior Steak Fry and some students in the TV studio:

Day 150 – Portraits, Portraits, Portraits

May 30, 2009

I took portraits all day today, starting with my cousin and her daughter in the early afternoon, and Michelle in the late afternoon/evening. I learned a great deal about how to use off-camera strobes and different outcomes from different setups. Please check out the galleries and let me know what you think.

Day 151 – I Would Like Advice, Please

May 31, 2009

I have been struggling with this question for quite some time, and it came up tonight, which rekindled my thinking on it:

How do you ask a man behind the counter for a soda when you don’t think there is a man there?
