Week 9 Tennis


This week I got to visit my extended family, on my dads side. The entire family except mine lives in the same town so whenever we visit it it a family reunion. David of course got everybody together to go play tennis. Not knowing tennis very well myself I mostly photographed it but even that was challenging because I wasn't very good at predicting where people would be so I could be ready for the shot. I did manage to get a few nice ones though this one being my favorite, David looks like he is working so hard hehe. Earlier in the week back in Missouri I photographed at the dog park and got this neat one of some dogs roughhousing. I like how the dust surounds them creating haze and adding to the sense of motion and activity. I also finally made it out to the coal plant in town to make some photographs like I have been meaning to do for awhile. The totally blue sky was a little bit hazy but the timeing was good right before sunset.

Week 50 Snow

This week I had some fun homework assignments photographed some playing Xbox and exploring in the snow. 








Week 24 Farm Work

This week there was lots of work to do on Round River Farm. The biggest task being cleaning all the manure out of the barn and chicken coop. It made a huge pile. There were also lots of vegetables as is to be expected. I also took a walk to the nearby lake and saw some beautiful flowers. 






Week 3 Jump High

For this week I had this plan of making a photograph of someone jumping high into the air maybe with a dog next to them or some other sort of creative twist. Laura's little brother was happy to be my model and had lots of fun showing off his cool jumps and flips. It was a very challenging shoot because the overcast day made for a low level of light and jumping on a trampoline is fast action. I did manage to make a few good photographs this one being my favorite because you can see al of James and it almost looks like he is flying instead of jumping. I like how you can see the trampoline but there is a lot of space between him and it. I wish that his head was more centered in the photograph and he wasn't looking out of the frame because as it is the composition doesn't keep your eyes in the image. I did also make some nice portraits when he took rest breaks.
