The Forgotten

Last week our assignment for picture stories was The Forgotten. I had a few ideas that didn't pan out and ended up shooting Brad Phelps. Brad is a janitor at T.C. Cherry Elementary in Bowling Green. He's a really great guy who loves his job. I only had 4 hours to shoot but here's what I got.

Rugby

I've been shooting a lot of sports recently for my sports portfolio in Picture Stories class. I'm really enjoying it. Today I shot some Rugby. That sport is ridiculously intense. Let me know what you think!

LAX

Today I shot a high school lacrosse game at Greenwood High School in Bowling Green, Ky. It was a super intense game that went into over time. The Greenwood Gators faced off against the Northern Kentucky Warriors. The Warriors won in overtime with a score of 8 to 7.

ACP Story

This is my story from the 2009 Appalachian Cultural Project. It's on Lynn Bolling, a worker at the IGA grocery store in Isom, Ky. She's a very family driven and welcoming person.

Fields of Fire

Some of my friends in Lexington are in a band called Fields of Fire. They're a metal band and they pretty much shred. I got to see them for the first time this weekend and it ruled. I know these are just performance shots but the red light fit the mood too well and I wanted to share the images. I'll post ACP stuff later tonight. I'm having a bit of toning trouble.

Truth Ministries Church

This morning we had to find a church service to shoot. I wound up at Truth Ministries Church in Whitesburg. It is an evangelical church and the people there were really welcoming and passionate. I don't know if I've ever seen people with faith like that. I love this area. Both its landscape and its people are beautiful.

First Story for PJ

So we finally got to stories in Picture Stories. Our story was on a teacher or coach. This is Christina Pollard. She is an elementary school art teacher at three different schools in Warren County. She is very dedicated to giving her students an art education, something she did not have growing up. Anyway, here it is!
