Second class for Photojournalism.
The idea is to add dynamism to normal portraits.

Assignment: shoot one picture of subject using last week’s guidelines, reduce shutter speed and make necessary adjustments – then shoot again introducing motion. The subject must be in a dark spot. Set focus to manual. The flash will freeze the subject while ambient lighting illuminates the background.

Saturday night in country-land.
As part of the wind up activities to the big day Dom & Marcus, in conjunction with moms & dads, host a hoe down. Held at McConnell House in Franklin, TN, this building is an historic jail built in the early 1990s. The band was amazing with a repertoire ranging from Led Zeppelin to more traditional country sounds.

Taking a break from the hub bub, I tried my hand at hand held low light shooting.
