Multiple Flash (i.e. complete pain)

Here's the select from the multiple flash assignment for Advanced Techniques. By far one of the most frustrating experiences I've had during a shoot for reasons I won't revisit right now. But, all in all I was satisfied with the picture I ended up getting.

CAPTION: Jake Gandlmayr settles into his rhythm as his band, "Envy the Cookbook," performed at the Rock the Wrench competition in Jesse Wrench Auditorium on Nov. 17. Despite the fact that the band formed two months ago and only practiced once prior to the battle of the bands, the group went on to win first place and a $500 gift certificate to a music store.

Multimedia Goodness

Here's my multimedia selection for Advanced Techniques.

The Sandwich Generation by Ed Kashi and Julie Winokur

The project in its original form can be found at, along with other incredible productions.

Color Correction

The latest from Advanced Techniques. This assignment = total confusion. It basically involved putting an orange or green gel over the flash depending on whether the light is tungsten or florescent. That's all. Sigh.

CAPTION: (Nov. 2, 2009) Katie McAllister applies a pesto spread to a piece of bread that will eventually be part of a bruschetta dish, one of the more popular offerings at the Underground Café. The Underground, previously the Artisan, has been struggling since the name change, so Katie and her brother have stepped in full-time to help their mother, who owns the coffee shop.
