This is going to be a big 'ole post of exciting (to me) stuff.
#1 - Louisville, KY
Two weeks ago, I spent an entire week in Louisville, Lulville, Luhvill, KY, with a group of amazing, talented photojournalists for the National Press Photographers Association's Multimedia Immersion Conference.
I returned home with a tired body and an energized, excited and inspired mind. As part of the conference, each student worked on their own multimedia piece during two afternoons, editing with Final Cut Pro late into the evening. Thank you Ed Hamilton for welcoming me into your studio and sharing your time with me. I truly enjoyed spending the day with you.
Here is the story I did in Louisville, my very first video:
Each night after the conference, I drove my little rental car down the very cool Louisville's streets of Bardstown and Baxter to the home of awesome friends Valerie and Curtis. I would tip-toe in and then tip-toe out 4 hours later. Val and Curtis, I love you guys. I'm so glad I was able to spend a day with you before and after the conference. I can't wait to return and photograph that belly full o boy!:)
#2 - Farmington, NM
So I'm back in F-town and I've already got a local video up on the Daily Times website. I'll admit, I was a little nervous that I might come home overwhelmed with ideas, inspiration and new skills, but struggle to find the time and resources to develop them. I squashed that fear. Got a video up. Check it out. It was a lot of fun. Looking forward to doing more!
#3 - Kansas City!!!!!!
One of my very best friends, Aaron, who has been a huge part of my life since I was a baby, got married in May in KCMO. Since I left the next week for Louisville, I'm a little late in putting this up! Here is a slideshow of some of my favorite images of the day. It was a gorgeous wedding with the most beautiful bride I've ever seen!!! I love you guys both. Disclaimer: I was in the wedding party, hence the reason I do not have photos of the ceremony!
