Randomness from the past week

I was told to go out and get a shot of the fall, here ya go.

This guy was a blast, he makes bird houses, bee boxes and turtle teepees, he said he was interested in my socks and we talked etsy a bit.

Another reason I don't like Walmart, they wouldn't let me go in and follow these two characters buying gifts for veterans at a hospital. They were good sports and fun to get to know.

October and breast cancer awareness

Climbed a couple of flights of stairs a scary ladder that went a little more than horizontal to cross a wet slick roof to get a shot that never ran.

I still like it.

Face vs Crowd

There is a constant discussion...fight...tug o' war about using face shots vs crowd shots. My opinion on the subject is that if the crowd is huge, unplanned for or in another way news worthy than run that one. If the crowd is the story but if what the crowd is doing is the story then run the faces, show what they are doing, why it is so important that it got coverage in the story.

A recent assignment had me at a local "blessing of the pets", there were probably 30-40 people with various animals at the local catholic church, nothing unexpected. I provided tight, medium and a wide crowd shot.

Which one would you use?

Sometimes I really like the photos of the people I get for the "man on the street". Some days I wish I could portraits but portraits they way I want to do them.


I've been looking at past post from early in my internship over 2 years ago and realizing how scared I was about taking people's pics. It's comforting to know that I now have no problem going up to someone and taking a pic of them eating food at the fair and then telling them that the story is about the high calories in the food they are eating, 2000 in the case of the bloomin' onion.

I have gotten over the fear of people not wanting their picture taken, most people are ok with it and excited that they might make it in the paper. Those who don't want their photo taken like this young man I don't really care because if you are headed to the courtroom you are fair game.

Victims can always be tricky shooting still, I never really know how they are going to react, this car dealer was swindled out of 30,000 dollars and was pissed. But in between the shots he was smiling and joking around. I really enjoyed the angry clouds.
And then there are the really random ones that turn out to be alot of fun. Barney Fife aka Scott Epperson was performing at the Bloomsburg Fair and he was a hoot. So much fun to watch interact with fans of all ages and talk with.

Last couple of days...

This woman was carried out of her burning apartment by the two police officers behind her, she was flirting with every guy in the room, reporter, videographer, and the two cops.

Local bean soup festival, the soup is a original from the civil war, didn't look, smell or taste good but people have been coming back for 118 years to get it.

The man in the corner was a former owner of a local theater in the 70s and stoped to see a mural that was done on the building next to where the theater burned down years ago. It was pretty emotional for him.

Cardboard Regatta

The regatta was part of the annual River Festival in Sunbury, Pa. It was nice to have an assignment where I could get my feet wet.
