This semester I took a photo-journalism class. And it was pretty fun! I think I would have learned a lot more had I owned one of those fancy SLR cameras, but hey it was fun to learn about them in case one day I do actually own one!
You know what else was fun, having an excuse to take pictures, and telling people "I'm in a photo class do mind if I take some pictures for an assignment" or maybe I shouldn't say people, because really I ended up taking a ton of Gwen! She was always around when I had an assignment due!
Any WHo. . . . . the following are some of my favorites I took (and a few I didn't I just thought you'd think was funny) We had to convert them to black and white when we turned them in so that our teacher didn't get distracted by the color and think it was a good picture when it wasn't, so the desaturated shots are most likely the ones I used for my class.
This is a shot of the hills in the Naches Valley, which correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe it's near Yakima. Sarah Boyce was driving a few of us from Singles Ward to a leadership retreat at Camp Zarahemla, I snapped this shot right out the window while Sarah was driving!
This is a pic Lisa Quinn took of me! I decided to post it, because I think it's clear I'm saying "I don't need anybody, I can pull this thing myself!" plus this is the most physical activity you'll probably ever see me do!
This is the nature shot I turned pictured, in the canoe is Sarah Boyce and a random girl I don't know.
Sports and Actions was my least favorite assignment, but I thought I had a pretty sweet action shot of my friend Lacey here playing this old pioneer game where you try to lift yourself up with your legs while clinging to the board, this picture looked ten times better in the camera view finder I had no idea it was so horrible until I went to edit it, If it wasn't so pixelated I think it would have been a cool shot, I really dug the angle! PS that's Trevin Byington on the end of the beam.
Here's Nette and her Mommala playing the Piano, you might recognize a similiar version of this pic from Nette's special dedication blog, but I was really excited about the angle of this shot too and decided to post another!
When I house sat for the Fancher's their cat Charlie was the cutest thing in the whole world, he kept jumping up on things and posing, he was a pretty good subject if you ask me!
This is my favorite of him, one day when I was getting ready he just jumped into the sink and chilled there while I finished my make-up and I was like that is too cute! So here's Charlie, cat napping in the bathroom sink acting like that's completley normal!
My next item of business is ASB.
This is the whole ASB crew from left to right starting in the back is Rhoan Ashby El Presidente, Josh Shoumann the Public Relations guy, Angela Fales as the VP, and Natalie Lindley (soon to be Coulston) as Treasurer, then it's me the Secretary and Rhen Ashby as the programming director!
After the event we had to get rid of the balloon arch so I challenged Rhoan to a balloon popping contest, we got in trouble with Campus security, but I just said forget it and finished popping them anyway!
I'm super excited about next semester and I'm even more excited about finishing up my AA finally! If things go my way then I should be able to move to Utah next fall, which is where I'd like to continue my degree in Communications and hopefully get on with a radio station there! that's the dream anyway!
