These are some photos I took of an artist that came to ACU and painted in chapel while some people sang. He created a painting that represented the Negro Spirituals they were singing. It was neat to see two art forms work together to create something.

We did a story on Kenya and all of the political disputes going on there and how it affected ACU students who are from Kenya. A large majority of those students are on the ACU track team. I got some photos of a couple of guys on the team talking with their coach after practice about issues at home.

This last photo is of a girl who is an ACU alumna that we did a feature on this week. She is now creating her own theatre company for "at-risk" children. Currently she is employed by Big Brother, Big Sisters.

Here is a photo that I took of a coach at ACU. He is the track hurdler coach and is well know for his love of jewelry. Here he displays many of his rings including a few championship rings from other universities he coached at.

And here are a few Sing Song photos from the week:

This week is going to be a long one because we have Sing Song this weekend. That means next week I will be putting all the best sing song shots on here. But for now here is a mix of the random assignments and projects I am working on. To begin...

These are shots from the play "The Crucible" that is going on here at ACU. I am working on sort of a progression of the play for the Optimist. There will be more shots next week of the final product.

These are sports shots from the week. I do not like taking pictures of sports, but it happens sometimes.

This week has been busy. I feel like I've been running around to lots of events trying to get some photos. However, many of them I do not feel like I did well on. It was sort of an off week. Here are some of the better...

This was at an event in the Bean Sprout called Coffee and Conversations. Our director of Multicultural Enrichment was singing old praise hymns. Here he is singing "Wade in the Water".

This is from some construction that is being done on EN 16th. We did a story on it this week because it affects a lot of students. It was hard to get a good shot because most of the construction was far away.

This is a photo that I just happened to see when I was walking into my apartment. I saw these birds up in the tree and as I walked toward them they begin to fly away. I was able to get a quick shot of them as they flew away.

The photoblog I am reviewing this week is an interesting one. It is called Non Photography (No Rules, Street Photography). She is an interesting photographer, because she considers her photographs unique and what she calls unconventional. She takes "street" photography and applies interesting and unique effects to the photos in Photoshop. She makes them look like old photos or Polaroids. This is something I'd like to learn how to do to photos.
