120 Casual Portraits in 74 Minutes

I recently coordinated and participated in the Hood College "Six Words, Six Photographers" project.  Toward the end of this five week largely photojournalistic endeavor, I became aware that Hood tends to need a lot of tight, energetic, images of students for current and future marketing purposes.

On my last two visits to the campus as the project wound down, I photographed 120 students in a total of 74 minutes of shooting time;  all with a D300 and an 85mm lens, and largely at f2.

They're not all great photographs, but they're all representative of the typical Hood College student in 2010.

You can see them here, here, here, and here...

All. By. Myself.

Six Words, Six Photographers

I am coordinating Hood College's Six Words, Six Photographers project in conjunction with the office of Marketing and Communication.  A half dozen of us have been turned loose with the objective of providing a visual glance into the Hood experience over the first four and a half weeks of the fall semester.  While the primary goal is to built up the college's library of current images for use online and in print publications, we've been documenting our results as the project moves forward in a blog.

It's been a great challenge as well as the most fun and freedom I've had as a photographer in a long time!

Back In The Day

I bought my first digital camera back in 1997.  It was a Kodak DC120.  It had a whopping one megapixel imaging chip, a 3X zoom lens, and took forever and a day to power up, shut down, and wait between shots.  I bought a 15 megabyte CF card to go with it.  I paid $999.00 for the camera and something over $200.00 for the CF card.  I actually sold a Leica M6 with a 50mm Summilux lens to bankroll this purchase.

It was essentially a point and shoot camera;  albeit with manual override.  Despite the fact that I was shooting my real world jobs with a Cambo 4x5, and a bunch of Hasselblads and Nikons, I thought it was as cool as anything I'd ever held in my hands.

I stumbled across what were some of the first pictures I ever shot with it recently in the course of reorganizing my archives.  Here are four of them.

Meet Nelson Holter

One of the unwritten rules of the internet is that all individuals who own a camera and a cat must most pictures of said cat online.
