One-Day Story

For my one day story, I spent some time with the Basye family. They live just eight miles outside Columbia, Mo. on a farm. Teresa and Mike are the parents and Josh, 4, and Emily, 3, are their children. Josh has autism and was the focus of my story.

Day 18

This is the Basye family. They were the topic for my one day/five points of view story. Mike and Teresa are the parents, Josh is 4 and Emily is 3. I really enjoyed the time I was able to spend with them and very appreciative that they let me into their home to photograph their lives. I learned a lot and I'm hoping I can go back soon and photograph more. These aren't necessarily the photos that will be in my project but they are photos I liked so I thought I would post a few for everyone to see.

Day 17

Tim was nice enough to walk with me to Chipotle on Friday and along the walk we found this random photo. Tim named her Emaline and she is now on the wall in the photo lab.

Meeting after POYi

These was taken at class discussion over POYi in RJI.

Day 13

Day 14

I just happened to be walking out of RJI on a cold day and saw the ice forming on the glass and decided to snap a photo.

Day 15

My curiosity took me to go to the Columbia Cemetery the other day. We had discussed covering this for our Broadway documentary in my Picture Story Class so I thought I'd check it out. I have a fascination with cemeteries (odd I know). I like to see who is buried in them and look at the ornate headstones. I did go into the office and get a map and a list of the famous people that are buried there so hopefully I can go back this weekend and find the peoples graves just to see what they are like.

Day 16

Today I went over to my friend Tim's to work on a 30 second video project and decided to snap a few photos of the cookies he was making. I don't remember the name of the cookie but they were delicious. :)

30 photos/30 days

I haven't been good at keeping up with this. I had photos to post but the card they were on went missing. Over the past three or four days I've been taking extra photos each day to make up for the lost photos.
The first set of photos is from Fastnacht (the German Mardi Gras).

one day story proposal

For my one day/five points of view I would like to go back and work with a lady whom I photographed alpacas for. I learned a lot about alpacas, the caring, feeding, shearing etc. from her the day I went out. She mentioned that she had a son with autism and I would like to photograph what her daily life is like- taking care of kids, animals, daily housework etc. I imagine this is not an easy task so I would like to go back and see how she does it all.

I briefly talked to her when I went out there about photographing her son. I wanted to make sure that I could photograph her son and her family and she didn’t have a problem with that. I need to call her tomorrow to set up a time to come for a day and make sure she would still be willing to let me into her home. I'm thinking of going there on a weekend day because that will allow me to get a whole day in instead of a partial day with me being in classes.

Day Nine

Sarah Gibert, MU journalism student.

Today I had an assignment for Vox to go take photos of the Get Lost Bookshop located at 8 South Ninth Street in Columbia.  I have never been to this place before but it turned out to be a cool little shop. Here are a few photos from my adventure there.  The only other thing I would change is to wear proper walking shoes.  I walked from the Missourian and had a nice walk except for the fact that my feet were killing me.

Day Eight

I wasn't quite sure what my photo would be for today until I got a text from my friend Jeff. He is in the Journalism program so some of you might recognize him. He is a reporter for the Missouri women's basketball team. Anywho, the game wasn't on tv this evening so he had to listen to it on the radio in his truck. I found this quite humorous when he sent me the text and decided to see if I could take photos of him taking notes and listening to the game while sitting in his truck. He was nice enough to let me come take photos and listen to the game. It was interesting to listen to the game on the radio vs watching it on tv. It reminded me of the times when people used to listen to ball games on the radio before tv entered the homes. It was a different experience getting to visualize the game in your head as you heard it instead of seeing it on a television screen. Thanks again to Jeff for letting me take his photo.

I obviously had to use strobe to light my photo. It wasn't easy seeing as I haven't really used my strobe much since last semester. Most of the time it showed up in my photo on the window behind Jeff but this was the only semi-decent photo of me using strobe. I hope to get out and explore more with my strobe to get re-acquainted with it. :)

Day Seven

I know I skipped a day. My day six picture is missing for the moment and I have to find out what card I put it on. The picture for today is of John Foley, a professor at MU who has two endowed professorships. I photographed this for an article that will be running front page tomorrow. Josh told me it would be running front page. No pressure, right? :)

Day Five

Today I had planned to go photograph some alpacas. It was a blast. They were very friendly animals and it was funny to see their reaction to my camera when I was taking photos of them. This is something I would love to go back to and photograph and the lady is more than willing to have me come back whenever I want. The top one is my favorite. I like the teeth showing.
I'm posting more than one photo of this because I had so much fun with it.

Day Four

I'm late at posting once again but I had three assignments for the Missourian that lasted all day yesterday. The photo I chose is one from the Beauty and the Beast meet. It was a challenge to shoot but I learned a lot from it.

Day Three

I'm a little late a posting. I took this picture outside of Jesse and decided to experiment with blurring a bit. I waited for some cars to pass and took the photo. Not necessarily too happy with the result but it is something I would like to explore more because I haven't tried this much in photos.

Test Answers

I took this off my brothers work blog (Williams + Paddon) and thought it was funny so I thought I'd share

Day Two

So today it started snowing. I didn't have much time to take a photo but knew I wanted to capture the snow somehow. This isn't the best photo but I liked the snow on the leaves. Hopefully this weekend I can go out and really explore and take some cool photos.

30 pictures in 30 days

For my capstone Picture Story class we are to take and post 30 photos in 30 days. I'm looking forward to it because it gives me a reason to wander about with my camera and should be fun. I'm already a bit behind on posting. I had to shoot the mens basketball game last night and didn't get out of the newsroom till 12:30 am. I did take this photo yesterday at the game.
