You live and learn. I decided on this assignment I was going to take some risks - I feel as if I don't take enough of them with my photography. And well, I was pleased with my result. However, my editors were not.
These are a few selections from my package that ran on the front page. Might I add I was nearly attacked by a bird and the tractor ran over my foot while I spent some time with these lovely people. But I wouldn't change a thing. Salt of the earth.
I'm a recent graduate of Central Michigan University with a bachelor degree in photojournalism.
