First day of internship

Yesterday was my first day of work. Twas fun! I went with Brian Diggs one of the photogs out feature hunting. He asked me where I wanted to go, and of course I said fishermens! So he found us a bridge and we shot some pics of guys fishing off of the Montopolis Bridge and then Brian took us to a place under the bridge and they were swinging off of a support beam with a rope tied to the top of the bridge (confused yet?) and then I rolled up my pants and walked in... well it looked like up to their calves.... well... by the time i got to where i wanted to be the water was up to the top of my tummy! Don't have the pic that was published... but here the link to the one online.

Summers are usually slow, I'm told, so today I didn't really shoot much, but I got my nikon 2nd body (to accompany my canon) and then I went out with Kelly West to a firehouse that was robbed of $40,000 of equipment.

No pictures this time because I'm on dial up and its a killer... Expect pics from NYC, Boston, and Gma's 80th birthday!

Also I think I may wait to buy my Canon 5d because now my laptop is crapping out, so I need to replace it.

Portfolio for Photo 503- Illustration and conceptual photography

A few of the other ones are already in my blog. This is my FINAL thing before I am free for the summer! yay!

Had to be a pencil.

Metal shot.

Glass shot.

Love without really showing it.

Guess my concepts for these... if you can't guess it, then I failed as a photographer! (Don't worry photo illustration really isn't my thing! lol) :)

My newly updated website

YAY! So I got it at least online! Still needs major tweaking... and a multimedia show! But here it is for your viewing pleasure!
