Mizzou Idol took place in Jesse Auditorium on Thursday. The winner received an all expense paid tip to the real American Idol auditions. I had fun with this assignment and the stage lighting was easy to work with.

Each student in fundamentals was randomly assigned another student to create a photo story about. I drew Nick Schnelle and have been shooting him for the past two weeks. As I got more comfortable with my subject I found it easier to make pictures that made a point about who he is. I liked having more time to go in depth and blend into the environment I was shooting In.

This past weekend I went on a trip with broadcast students to Nashville, TN. I definitely got a southern comfort vibe from the city. The downtown area was vibrant with music and energy but the further we crept away from the metropolis the more things started to slow down.
Driving back to Columbia from Nashville we spotted smoke over the St. Louis horizon. A car of curious journalists exited off the highway around 2am to investigate. We found a fire of a building occupied occasionally by a homeless man owned by a church next door. We were in a pretty rough neighborhood and many of the neighbors came outside to see what was going on. I definitely enjoyed the rush of my first real spot news.
