Man, if any of you guys are interested in photojournalism or storytelling through photography. This is the talk to watch! I was so inspired after watching this lecture by Ryan Lobo
I hope everyone had an awesome weekend. I didn't do much photography this weekend, it was all eating! hah. I ate so much food and my stomach is growing larger as a result. But I thought it would be fun to post some photo blogs that I read and subscribe to.

Anyways, having mostly everyone home reminded me of the summer and during the summer I went on a mission trip to taiwan. Looking through all the images made me miss taiwan and everyone there... =( Here is a shot of me and the kids. I really want to go back this summer, but I don't know what God has in store for me. We shall see.
shot basketball yesterday with Jeff. Fun game to shoot. There were good dunks. OSU won. oh yeah, happy thanksgiving everyone!
Doug needed headshots. Photographed him in my secret location (everyone photographer knows where it is..lol) in short north. Then we went to the new Thompson Library at OSU and photographed him on the top floor. It was fun catching up with him and Alicia! We use to all go to Chi Alpha together so it was fun catching up with the two of them.
We had fun messing around too!
This was laying around where we shot in the back alley....seriously. It looked like someone was going to come back to pick it up...
Here is the beautiful Alicia!
Shot the awesome crazy mirror lake jump for UWeekly this weekend. It was so crazy. This year was the perfect year to jump because the weather was amazing. It wasn't snowing or super cold. Although I didn't jump, I felt like I did because I kept getting splashed on. I was soaked from head to toe! I'm really glad I had wrapped up my camera in plastic because I was observing everyone else with dlsr's and they were not fairing so well. I stood right in the splash zone so I could get some cool shots. Praise God that none of my equipment got damaged... The style of these pictures are a lot different than what I usually shoot. I felt like I needed to capture the chaos by adding motion/blur. I didn't want to complete freeze the motion. Over all, fun yet hectic. I even some video! oh yeah....OSU BEAT MICHIGAN! whooo!
