Street portrait: Rachel

My friend Rachel happened to be around when I was testing out a new picture profile on my camera. It is designed to mimic black and white film and I think it does a pretty good job. It may not be the best profile but I like how it looks.

Shannon Moloney is a friend and fellow student here at Ithaca College. We spent some time together and while there was still some daylight shining in through the window I asked to get one quick shot of her. Here it is.

This is part of a new policy implemented by Ithaca College president Tom Rochon. All student media must contact Maley to set up interviews with upper level faculty and administrators. The campus community has responded very strongly to this new policy, including a letter urging repeal from about 70 faculty members as of Friday, Oct. 5, 2012.

Street portrait: Matt Kelly

I would like to introduce a new type of portrait posting for the website. It will be a “street portrait.” Basically it will be simple photographs just arranged on the spot and that happen to catch my eye. Here is the first one.

Recently I shot photos of Megan Musnicki, a Olympic gold medalist who graduated from Ithaca College, for The Ithacan. Along with Matt Kelly, sports editor for the paper, we were able to set up some great shots. But, interestingly enough this practice shot of Matt deserves some attention.
