Midland vs. Dow

Last week was the annual showdown between the Midland and Dow football squads. A good crowd turned out and our staff got out to cover the action. To see our edit from the night, click here.

The Middle Third

One of the first things I learned in photo class was the "rule of thirds." It's also one of the first things I unlearned. Here are the center of things from my three assignments today in the order that they were shot. A Dow Chemical media tour, occupy Midland, and Midland soccer. Looks like I need to get back to the basics.

Creek Equestrian

Ever since I started in Midland I had a gut feeling that I should call Jane, Creek's equestrian coach, to see if she'd be interested in a photo story. It took me awhile to pick up the phone to get the ball rolling, but once I did the team, coaches and parents invited me in. This weekend is the state championships which will wrap up my time with the team. I'm excited to see the photos in print, but a little sad that I won't be hanging around the barns much longer. Here are a few from tonight's practice.

On the desk

For the past two weeks I've been on the desk editing and designing. I did a stint in August but relied on my coworkers to help me as I fumbled around in inDesign. Nick was there to assist with the Alzheimer's pages for one of the Sunday sections, but the rest were done on deadline. Turns out, I like design. But with that said I'm glad to be on the night shift this week. Back to prep sports and small town events.
