life through a viewfinder

There’s no place like home

So Britney’s most recent post got me thinking. Feel-good photos? What is a feel-good photo?

I realized that the pictures I take… for the Kernel, for weddings, for engagements, for anything… they’re not for me. They’re fun, sure, and I love what I do. But they mean nothing to me personally. So while in D.C., I challenged myself to take photos for me, and for me alone. This is what I came up with.

Today I shot pictures of Fred Hina, the former fire chief of the OFD. I’ve been feeling like my photos have been looking too point-and-shoot, so I was really trying to get something different.

ROMPin’ in the park

Posted in Uncategorized by Emily on June 26, 2008

One of my assignments yesterday was to head out to Yellow Creek Park where the ROMP festival will be taking place for the next few days. My goal was to capture something different, something more personal that the paper hasn’t ever covered before. Turns out, the M-I had never covered any of the families that come in in RVs and camp out through the festival. So, I found this lovely family and snapped some pictures of them.
