313th Medical Company 2nd Iraq deployment, a farewell ceremony

*Great assignment but hard to shoot. Ran into a friend whose sister is leaving. I nearly cried along with the families, such a chilling, sad concept, leaving for war.

Walk for Down's Syndrome

*Had a decent shoot at this for the LJS, but made an epic fail in legibly writing down caption information. Two of these photos ended up having wrong names, we had to print a correction the next day. A BIG DEAL in newspapers. I learned from it though.

Good v. Evil (In California)

* In the backyard of the house I stayed at in Costa Mesa this summer. Played with the tripod one night, and decided to experiment/learn more about the flash.

This is one photo (no Photoshop or manipulation), with one flash firing once at the beginning of the shutter and once at the end. It took me 30 tries to get something compositionally I liked. The contrast in emotion is a bit of luck, and funny I think.
