Michigan





These two guys were sitting maybe 25 feet from each other.

more country stuff...



yeah, I was this close to Josh Turner.



Gang signs? The shocker? Not really sure what's going on here, but it seemed like a good moment to me.



I LOVE this photo. It was pouring down rain and these girls were dancing like crazy to Trace Adkins.

Who's that Beach Boy?

So the Beach Boys performed at Country Concert this year, and it's kinda funny because there's only one original member left in the group.

There was also one member that looked a little out of place...





JOHN STAMOS!!??!!!

Yeeeee-haw

Combining

Erin called me yesterday and told me we needed some farm photos ASAP. So, I drove the whole 1 min. it takes to get to the country from bustling city of Sidney (haha) and found a family out "combining" (I didn't know that was a verb, but ok) a field. They were really nice and let me ride around in the combine with them, which was good and bad because I learned a lot about wheat, but it took up all my shooting time and I had to rush to my next assignment.

Horsey



I really like this photo, but the girl on the horse didn't because she was correcting him.

Note to Erin: This horse photo was completely diagonal , but I fixed the horizon!



This photo is from when my good friend Colleen came and made me model for her around Sidney. She's getting ready to graduate from the Ohio Institute of Photography and Technology in Dayton and was working on her final portfolio.

A final thought: Every day people tell me via facebook or IM that they read my blog and like it, but they don't leave comments, and that makes me kinda sad..... just sayin'. :-P

Photoshop







So....Erin taught me how to use the history tool on photoshop 2 weeks ago. it's a cool tool to know, but i still need some work with it. this photo is the first thing i ever used it on. it's a photo from my drive to Jackson Center, OH. Every time I drive down this road i have to stop to take a photo of something. It has the prettiest fields & colors I've ever seen!
