Project 365 – Days 40 through 44: Late nights with photo assignments and homework

(February 9, 2013)

After covering baseball and softball games at Cosumnes River College, I had a long night of sorting through photos, rosters and my game notes to pick out the best photos that would lend themselves to the best caption. (My Flickr sets, including my sports photos)

I was at the kitchen table the night before for caption writing because this is how my desk looked. Yikes! Yes, I’ve cleaned it since then.

Another late night shot where I had been writing captions for a photo assignment (this time a club profile), as well as reading for my history paper and scanning old film negatives for my Photoshop class.

After my long day of school on Tuesday (7:30 a.m. until 9 p.m.), I had to head back over to Hookaholics for that review that my friends and I were working on for The Connection. We needed better photos with people. While I was shooting the photos, I noticed someone was smoking out of a pineapple. Yeah, that was pretty epic to see.

To conclude this assignment themed post is from yet another late night. This time I snapped a photo while I was half asleep, trying to finish my history paper. I was up until 3 a.m. writing, and had to get up around 6 a.m. for my history class at 7:30 a.m. Gross.

Project 365 – Days 31 through 33: Experimental shots

January 31 2013

(Jan. 31, 2013) I checked out a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L lens from the Cosumnes River College newspaper so I could shoot a softball game. I put a 2x lens extender (which I also borrowed from the newspaper) so I could take some test shots. The helicopter was just a speck in the viewfinder, and I cropped like crazy, but this is what came out. I’m surprised at the stop-motion and detail to be able to read “Police.” I want this lens! Anyone feeling generous?

(Feb. 1, 2013) My Photoshop teacher very briefly showed the class how to get this “color burst” effect to black and white photos. He just breezed through it as a demonstration to show us the wonders of Photoshop, but it was simple enough and I wanted to try it out. So here’s a shot of my awesome Spearmint Chapstick!

(Feb. 2, 2013) I shot Cosumnes River College’s softball team playing their first home game: A doubleheader against Lassen Community College. I had autofocus on (I’m sorry!), and some freaky things can happen when not manual focusing. This picture is one such freaky thing. I thought it looked cool, though, so I saved the picture.
