We're Going Home!

Well Alpha Company has graduated and I have once again realized that I have not been keeping the three of you, actually I think there's less than that, loyal followers up to date with my photos. So here are some from the final days of Alpha Co. here at Ft. Knox. It was really nice to see all the families getting back together and to see how proud the families were of their cadets. Looking back on it, you could tell that these people came in a certain way and left as much more mature people. There was much hugging and kissing of boyfriends and girlfriends at the reunion. It even made me smile. Also, I've never had so many people telling me how much they appreciated my work. It made me pretty happy to know that I did a good job and I helped make it enjoyable for the parents.

It was difficult to see the cadets go since I finally started making some friends with them as they were winding down. Some of the other photographers got really close to their cadets from the start but I didn't feel like that was professional. I like to keep a professional distance from my subjects that way I know that I will cover them fairly and that I won't focus on person or group to much. Thank you ethics class.

Anyway, hope you like the photos. Let me know what you think and hey, since you're here why don't you mark yourself down as a follower over there to the side ->. Also, it would help me out if people started following the RSS feed. That way I don't have to worry about posting this up on 10 different sites to make sure people know about it. Also, and this is the last thing, let your friends know about this site! Pretty please! So yeah, start following, sign up for the RSS, and spread the word. Oh, and leave comments as always.

It's Been Awhile

So once again I find myself looking at the calendar and realizing that it's been forever since I put a post up here. There has been so much going on with LTC and my company is getting ready to graduate in less than two weeks. It's been a really interesting experience and it was cool to see these guys develop basically in front of my eyes. In about a week they're going to have an event called "Family Day" which is exactly what it sounds like. For that they're going to blow a couple of my photos up to literally gigantic size. I don't know the exact numbers but I think it's around 5'x7'. Anyway, that's being done for two of my photos. One of which is the water photo up above here. Hope everyone enjoys the shots. Leave a comment and let me know what you think.
