Vintage Baseball

This is the start to another small project I'm hoping to work on in my few weeks left at the Kalamazoo Gazette. This past Saturday I drove to South Haven, Mich., to photograph a vintage baseball game. It was so much fun. Basically, each team has their own time period and each time period has specific rules. Some of these include not running past first base, no sliding or diving to catch the ball, the ball always being in play, and no gloves. There is a double-header coming up next weekend in Douglas that I'm hoping to photograph. Let me know what you think!

Week 5

Here are my favorite photos from week five of my internship at the Kalamazoo Gazette.

The first is from the Kalamazoo Country Club Invitational golf tournament. This was the first time I ever photographed golf. It's a pretty different sport. I did come away from it with this picture.

One day I was getting ready to walk in the door at work and got a call from my editor telling me to go photograph a wreck at the intersection of West Main and Drake Road. Thankfully no one was injured. This man, D.J. Rush, walked away with only minor scratches on his arm.

This is the start to a small project I'm working on about The Lonesome Moonlight Trio. The band performs at the Cooper Café in Cooper Township every Wednesday and Saturday. They're really great guys and play great bluegrass music. I'm working on putting together a short audio slideshow once I gather more content.

Out and About in Michigan

Just a few shots from wandering around Kalamazoo recently (except the last picture, which is from South Haven). I've felt a little stagnant in my shooting recently so I've been trying to push myself to look at things a little differently than I normally would. It's been fun so far. Let me know what you think!
