Boy oh boy, do I have a treat for you today!

First, let me congratulate myself: this is my 300th blog post. I love writing this blog and I love even more those (very few) of you who leave comments. Any of the images I post here are subject to any critique however you want to give it to me. I appreciate knowing which images you like, why you like them, as well as those that you don't like and why. If something strikes you as great or horrible, tell me and then tell me why!

On to today's business: The Lumberjack.

I am extremely happy with how my images turned out today. I am also (I can't believe I'm saying this) pleased with how the website actually ran a multitude of pictures with the stories that got shot well.

First (and most importantly) my shoot of the Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats performing on Campus in the newly renovated Prochnow Auditorium.

Second: a bunch of color during the Coming out day event (much paint involved)

Coming up: I spent an hour with fins and a snorkel yesterday in NAU's Wall Aquatic Center photographing the Swim and Dive team.... from underwater. It was my first experience shooting underwater and overall I'm extremely happy with how it went... Not because the images are great (they aren't) but because I had an absolute blast doing something new and I relish challenges, especially those that involve new gear, battery acid and oxygen deprivation. More on that (as Joe McNally would say) To Come.
