Jumping Goblings (and such)


Happy Halloween everyone! Just a feature from McNeill Elementary.

The "Mountain" Comes to a Close


Chicago Tribune photojournalist Scott Strazzante takes part in the annual silly string ritual of the Mountain Workshops, sponsored by Western Kentucky University. After 10 days of building a 90-computer newsroom, processing more than 50,000 images, producing a book, a web site and a DVD feature, stress is released by attacking the last digital card drop with string and confetti.

Friday Night Explosions


My niece was just a baby in my arms yesterday! Now she is on the field for homecoming. How time flies.

Maine in Review

video
As the Audio-Visual manager of the Maine Media Workshops this past summer I was afforded an opportunity to interview many talented individuals in the photographic business. Tim McLaughlin captured most of the stills used here while I conducted interviews, edited and produced this piece.

Harvest Sun


This is how summer should be - but not in October! Especially in Michigan.

What we needed to hear


On September 26 David Missall from Sennheiser visited my Intro to New Media class and gave a wonderful 2-hour lecture on how microphones work with different types of sounds. Thank you David. Thank you Sennheiser!

Welcome Jim!


Please join me in welcoming Jim Bye to our staff. Jim will be responsible for everything so we are glad he is here! So is Jeanie Adams-Smith. See her smile?

Hold on to that pig skin


This "fake" rubberized grass makes for some good "dirt" pictures. Love the spray coming up.

Put your weight into it


It always becomes a fun image when feet start flying up over the head.

See Dick run. Run Dick, run


Pretty straight forward AP action. But, when in Rome ....

Face Plant


I haven't shot a football game in a couple of years! It felt good to get out again and see if this old man still has it. Not sure if I do but this is what I got one Saturday afternoon in Bowling Green, KY.

Lobstah


This is me - in case you are wondering. Photo by Tim McLaughlin.

More Blue Experiments


Some more "blue" experimentation. Some day I will have shot enough "blue" pictures to have my own blue gallery.

Bryan Moss visits WKU


Bryan Moss, author of Photosynthesis: A Simple Guide to the Magic of Photography, and the co-director of the Whitecloud Workshop visited with students and faculty of Western Kentucky University for two days. Thanks for coming Bryan. Your insight was very useful.

My blue experiment


This photo was taken in Rockland, Maine. I played with color balance choosing flourescent to document the alpenglow over the Harbor.

Back in Bowling Green



I was asked to go shoot some group pictures in my daughters classroom for a WKU Spirit contest. Then I was pulled in to the teachers classroom next door to shot their picture - this is where I found this feature. You never know where a feature will come from.
