I took this as part of my photojournalism class. This is me reading Bill Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything in my barracks room at lovely Fort Meade, Maryland. For the most part, I'm a live wire, but I wanted to do something that showed a more intimate side of me. I'm wearing a white t-shirt and jeans, no socks, and in this portrait, I'm at my most liberated.
Hmm... I like this, but I can't help but be curious what it would've been shot horizontally... and I've actually seen some of the Syracuse people's work. You'll get in, no problem. You just don't seem to have too much action stuff (well, that you post here); it's all very still life... although some great photojournalism is still, I'd be interested to see what you come up with if you took a camera down to some DC protest or something or the other. Something with lots of emotion and movement.
Yeah, I shot it horizontally too, but this one came out the best.
The action stuff is all corny right now. I don't have many really dope things I want to post up here. I was actually going to cruise into D.C. today and shoot some goodies.
good comtemplative pose! Fort Meade - isn't that where they
keep the bio-weapons? I remember reading that the photojournalism
program for the navy was also run out of a northern US university - Chicago?
Fort Meade is home to our spy friends and the National Security Agency! The rumors are indeed true. They have an enormous operation budget and handle 70 percent of the intelligence workload for the nation.
The PJ program for us is run out of Syracuse in upstate New York. I'm trying to put together my portfolio to get in, but it's wildly difficult.
I have a couple of Cray supercomputers.. but I've read of mythical
500 acre underground computing 'farms' the NSA runs such awesome
computing power .. just to listen in on 50 million phone calls an hour... a
world's worth of voice, fax, radio, email..SIGINT - Echelon is a hungry monster indeed!
Best of luck for the PJ program.. I think you'd have a good chance!
Usually when there's a predominance of darkness, it tends to lead one thinking along the lines of anger and/or forbidding - or at the very least aloof. However, this seems a warm and intimate portrait. More of an opening yourself up than a closing off. The light catches your profile cleanly but hides the features so we are left to base interpretations from body-language and pose, rather than facial expression. Interesting indeed. (and dead sexy to boot!)
I occasionally gripe to my family that there are no good pictures of me around the family. I wanted to take one that I could send them, one that I thought was more like me. My whole family knows I'm over the top and very kinetic. What's really funny, is that my family thinks they know more about me than I do. I really love that. This is a big part of my life that few folks see.
I love wearing a white shirt, jeans and bare feet. It just makes me feel whole and somewhat more American. SIlly, I know.
Dead sexy huh? :licks: You know, you still owe me a picture!!!!
