A Year in Review: Portraits

So I have decided to post some work from the past year so I can get the ball rolling on this blog, while I am in a long process of building a website (something I really don't have a clue to do). So here are some of my favorite portraits from the past (school) year, bring my second year of college to a close.

ACP 2009: Whitesburg, Ky.

ACP is short for the Appalachian Cultural Project sponsored by Western Kentucky University each year. A small group of WKU photojournalism students are given the opportunity to travel to Whitesburg, Ky. within the Appalachian mountains for one week, working alongside some of the best photojournalists in the business. Student strive to meet new people in the town and surrounding areas. Participants do their best to battle stereotypes placed on the area by mainstream media and find real life stories worth telling. This year in March, I was lucky enough to be a photojournalism participant in the workshop.

Smoke Scene

While attempting to come up with an idea for a final story this semester, I had in mind to so a story on Cafe 360, a hookah bar here in Louisville. Its a popular spot among youth around Bardstown road, and gets a lot of 502 patrons at night, since it stays open 24 hours.
Well, I didn't end up doing a final on that, but instead just a feature.

The hands say it all

Our first assignment in my PJ Tech class last semester was to shoot a portrait of an individuals hands, in manner to expressing characteristics of the person. I admit I am not fully satisfied with my shot and I would to further explore this concept in a photo.

For my portrait I photographed the hand of a college freshman who had previously been in a car accident on a major highway. She broke all of her fingers in the accident, causing nerve damage, which had now allowed her to bend her fingers back to her hand. The photo illustrates this partially. 

Its all new..

Hello to all who read,
I am new at this whole blog world, and I decided to try it out in hopes of getting some of my photography out there and more noticed, as well as to keep in touch with fellow photographers and gain feedback on my work. Any is appreciated. I will be posting my photography assignments from my photojournalism technologies class at WKU shortly.
Have a gander...why not.
