Piano Lady

My good friend Lynzi Grant had me help her with a photoshoot this morning. She's doing some kind of project for a lady who plays piano. The shoot went better than I expected, especially for only using 1 light and not having a reflector. She wanted something a little uncoventional, so this is what we got!

getting a little crazy

Lynzi took this one

JRN 521 Assignment 2

A travel piece on Midland, Michigan

The city of Midland is home to 72 parks, plus several forests such as this one, the Midland City Forest. The parks and forests feature many recreational opportunities such as sledding, ice skating, tennis, biking and dog walking.

The Tridge lights up after dusk over the crossing of the Tittabawassee and Chippewa Rivers in Midland. The Tridge is located near downtown next to the farmer's market.

The Michigan Shoppe, located at 128 E. Main Street in downtown Midland carries a variety of Michigan-made and Michigan-themed products, such as this Maple syrup from Rose City, Michigan. The store is a new addition to the downtown area and is owned by Jon and Tracy Burroughs.

A student passes through the Hach Student Life Center at Northwood University. Northwood is Midland's only in-town college. It is private but features NCAA athletics including Timberwolf football and basketball, among other sports.

Youth hockey leagues practice moving with the puck at the Midland Civic Arena. The arena complex is a high quality ice facility featuring two NHL-sized skating rinks and an Olympic-sized rink. It is located at 405 Fast Ice Drive.

A winter day is the perfect time to take advantage of Midland's outdoor ice skating rinks, such as this one in Midland City Forest, located at 2840 E. Monroe Road.

The Midland Mall draws in many mid-Michigan shoppers, such as this group of students from nearby Central Michigan University. The mall is home to 58 stores and eateries including Target, JcPenny, Bath & Body Works and more.

Cars pass through Main Street on a cool winter night in Midland. Downtown Midland is a great destination for shopping, dining, recreation and working. For information about downtown Midland can be found at

100th Post! Wrestling (JRN 521)

So I shot some wrestling for class. I'm not very excited about these photos. I wish I could have shot some kind of artsy angle, but I wasn't coming up with anything good, so these are just straight action shots.
