CMU Men's Basketball - Mostly Wide

Decided to change it up and shot with a wide angle a large portion of the first half. Had and early deadline and only could stay about six minutes into the second half. The game went to double overtime and I can only imagine what I missed, but it's a "digital first" world strangled by print deadlines. I digress, enjoy the photos.

Rosebush apple orchard





Sometimes you arrive 30 minutes early and they are running 40 minutes late.

Sometimes there is a lack of emotion.

Sometimes you get yelled at for taking photos of people wiping themselves free of apple pure.

Sometimes you label your photos in the order they should run.

Sometimes the designer chooses other wise.

Sometimes is a good way to characterize the life a photojournalist.

Sometimes good, sometimes bad.

Never, ever the same.

15 minutes of practice


Sometimes you have an a couple hours for an assignment. Other times, 15 minutes. The pressure to make images in a limited time frame is sometimes what makes the job so much fun.

Window light stalking


A man, who asked to be unidentified, looks through science and nature books Tuesday afternoon at Alma Area Used Book Sale. The annual sale continues today and Thursday at the First Presbyterian Church, 495 Charles Ave. in Alma. The funds raised from the sale fund scholarships for local non-traditional college students.

Some times you have to wait, wait some more, wait a little longer and then just maybe everything will align.

Jingles and Chandler


Chandler Denton, 12 of Clare, takes a break Friday at the Clare County Fair after walking his quarter horse Jingles who was dehydrated. "She doesn't like the water here," Denton said. Denton, a member of the Giddy Up 4-H Club, had to walk Jingles to keep her from eating dirt and laying down to prevent colic. "There's nothing I'd rather be doing than riding," he said.

Isabella County Fair


We did a feature on rides at the fair. I knew immediately I wanted to do some long exposure(something I've never seen in our paper). I arrive just before dusk and as I set up, the lights go out and the rides suddenly stop. An hour and a half later and a fixed generator I made this.

Sometimes all you can do is wait.
