I covered my first military homecoming, it was neat I was running around finding families before hand and the ones I talked to had very oh how do I say this... boring reunions. so I quickly turned around and shot this couple. This first one is my favorite from the day, I do wish I was on their other side so that I could have gotten the kids face, but hey I can only be so good.
This is the shot that was in the paper, you can see everyone's face.
Guys getting off the plane
This family was cute but the dad would look and cheese it up everytime I pointed the camera at him, this is one of the only ones where he hadn't noticed yet and was still talking with family.
These are from Monday Pre-Veteran's Day Program at a local elementary school. I got there half way through because I thought I was working at 9 but was scheduled at noon so the news editor didn't think there could be a photographer until I walked in 3 hours early. Thank goodness I did, I can't imagine what would have happened if the reporter had to take the photos, which they actually do A LOT here.
I have started my day shifts and am loving it, yeah for not being in the office till midnight. Although I am sad to see most of sports events go but now I get to shoot old people skating. It was pretty fun once they got use to the idea of me out there and that they didn't have to stay 15 feet away. I played around with flash and shutter, I don't know if it worked but there were a couple that my editor was willing to publish and a few he wasn't but that I kindof like.
