Last School Post

As the term comes to a close, I have been asked to post my favorite photo from this term. This is a tough decision as there might be a few thousand photos at my disposal. But being the dog person that I am, there is one photo that stands out from all the others. I was sitting at home with one of my best friends, and my dog, Shotzi, wandered up to her and just plopped down in front of her. My friend began to massage and scratch Shotzi, and I noticed the face she was making. PURE HAPPINESS.

My photo skills from the beginning of the year were decent, but not great. While they have improved (I finally figured out how to change my ISO!!) I still have a long ways to go. Fortunately I have a lot of opportunities to improve my shots.

Reading Its What I Do is starting to look like one of the best decisions I've made in a long time. Im far more accustomed to reading books like Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings. But a recent timeline non-fiction book has gotten my attention for the first time ever. The amount of detail in the prelude shows a no-holds barred style of writing, with an attention to detail. The writing really makes it feel dangerous, and leaves readers with a cliffhanger that we don't get to resolve until later in the book. The pictures she took during the conflict in Libya are exceptional, showing the fear and uncertainty in many of the rebel fighters. Often these photos were taken just before a helicopter strafe or a bombing by government planes. Then when she is writing about her early life, she has the same style of writing. Only the truth is written.

Photo Dump for Week 1

As this is the Internet, just call me Griff. Im a student at Linn-Benton, majoring in journalism. Im taking a journalism class, which prompted me to create this blog. I may not have much experience in photojournalism but I'M READY TO GO
Super typical, but I have 3 big goals for this class, 1) To improve my photography skills and apply them in my endeavors with the Commuter. 2) Gain a better understanding of the First Amendment and how it affects news reporters. 3) Doing this has made me happy to go to class for once, I want to keep it that way.
Then for next week, I'm planning on doing multiple shoots on Saturday (Baseball and Athletic Playday)   #25 Damon Peters jumps for first base after an excellent bunt up the third baseline.
