We shot a lighting assignment last week. This is one of the students I worked with.

This is the portrait Tina and I made while she was visiting.

This week (if good weather) we will be shooting from airplanes. Three or four students will fly at one time. This should make for an interesting week. It has been snowing here most of the day. This is the first real snow I have seen. Hopefully it will not get bad.

Black Friday

Well, Thanksgiving is over and Christmas just around the corner. I celebrated Thanksgiving with a group of friends. We shared lunch and played cards until late in the evening. I missed being at home with my family. This was the first time in my life that I have not been with them for this holiday. But I am thankful for the friends who I have met here. They are a great group of people. Just like my friends at home!

I will be at the school for the next few days. I have a couple of assignments due at the end of the week and I need to get them finished.

(pictures are my first attempt at macro shots)

Last Sunday was my 45th Birthday.
Tina was here to celebrate with me during
the day. Rod drove in later in the evening.
The "girls" I hang out with decorated my
back stairs. I was totally surprised when I
woke to go to church and the hallway was
decorated! We had a cupcake party after
School was a little less stressful last week. We are working with design
programs and learning to design our own 6x9 promo cards. Also we are
working on a CD insert. I give this school credit, I will know a bit of everything when I leave here.
I do miss everyone back home. I'll see all of you at Christmas break.

Self Portrait

This is my self portrait! I think the picture says is all!

Everyone enjoy!

Phase One Nov 7th 2008

The first phase is over! I have made it so far! I can hardly believe that one quarter of this program is already over. This first milestone was unbelievable. But this will be nothing compared to the final phase review at the end of the year.

My sister has been visiting for a week now. She got talked into being my model for part of my assignment. Going to shoot in the portrait studio for a few hours tomorrow so I can practice. So I guess she is not done with her modeling career yet!
(This picture of Tina was my outdoor portrait and the picture of the jacks is my shot to show motion.)
