"If my muscles hurt, it just means I've used them. If it hurts to walk up the stairs, it's just cause I've done it a hundred times to lay down next to a man who loved me. My face may have wrinkles, but I have laid under hundreds of skies on sunny days. I look like this, well, because I drank and I smoked and I lived and I loved and I screwed my way through a pretty damn good life. Getting old isn't bad. It's earned. "

as part of the assignment, we had to shoot on 4x5 trans. film. I used a Calumet large format camera and two broncolor strobes to light it. For this particular shot I used my 20d settings were ISO 100, f/11 at 1/125.

After we designed our layouts we switched with another group and shot their designs. Each member of the group got two shots to shoot. this is what I ended up with (with much help from Doug and Elisa!)

I used my 20d. Broncolor pack and 3 strobes. My settings were ISO 100 1/125 at f/22

Throughout my Internship, I didn't get to photograph anything personally. An ocasionally "rachel, press the shutter" occured but I never got to shoot anything on my own. Over the weekends, though, I would randomly shoot whatever crossed my path. One weekend, I went and watched my niece and nephew for a few hours and instead of watching Jimmy Neutron with them (hints, to why they look stunned), I picked up my camera and shot a few photos.

I used the avaible light coming through the window. I shot with my 20d, settings were ISO 100, focal length at 49mm, 1/13 @ f/5.6
