The original reason I created this blog was to document my assignments and progress in Advanced Techniques in Photojournalism with Rita Reed. Now that the class is over, I still plan on using this blog to document my studies while at Mizzou. But, just as one chapter closes, another opens. On January 2, 2011 I will continue in my journalistic endeavors abroad. I’ve been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to travel to Costa Rica with the Missouri School of Journalism to study and report on nature and society in the developing world. Along with Professor Bill Allen and four other Mizzou students, I will travel across Costa Rica digging for stories to tell and to take in as much as I can about the exciting culture there. I’ve been across the United States, to Europe multiple times, and Mexico and the Caribbean, but never Central America. Needless to say, I am ecstatic. I will be updating this blog while I’m there, and I believe we will have a specific blog for the trip as well. So come the new year, be on the lookout for new posts! I may even put my new knowledge in lighting to the test…bounce flash was always my favorite 🙂
Just a little teaser:
Fun fact: Zip lines were created so that scientists could better study the canopy of the rainforest. See, I’m already teaching you things and I’m not even there yet! If you already knew that though, kudos.
It is my goal to spot a sloth, and if I can make a picture like this I will be the happiest girl alive.
