Happy Monday! Can you believe it is already the end of March? It's pretty insane and busy for me. This week in photojournalism, my professor paired the class off for an assignment called "Day In The Life." Our task was to photograph our partner over the course of a day and come up with a photo story. Luckily, my partner is Marlee, who is a friend of mine. While it can be a little awkward for photographer and subject to just walk around campus and Burlington with the camera going, it is something I got over relatively easy. The camera almost acts as a barrier and I try to immerse myself in getting the shot I want. The awkwardness is worth it.
The challenge with this assignment was finding events that were interesting to photograph. Marlee was celebrating her 20th birthday during the time we had for shooting, so I had a pre-planned story including the party planning and party. Below are the photos I have chosen to show the days events. Along with the caption, I will try and give you insight into why I like each photo. Here we go!
My first image (not my lead image) is Marlee in her Global Communications class. While this isn't the most interesting photo, I thought it was important to portray that she was a student. I had problems with exposure and facial expressions in my other photos. Sometimes you take what you can get.

on March 23, 2012, prepping for her birthday party.
This is one of my favorite photos from the set. One of our previous assignments was "Human Interaction." I think this is a great example. I didn't have to do much editing on this photo which was convenient. I did crop some of the side off the photo to focus more on the girls.
