For my last photography and visual communications class as an undergrad at Ohio University I took a small systems lighting and portraiture class. For all our assignments we were required to use artificial light to light our subjects. It gave me a chance to step outside of photojournalism and control my subjects and the setting while learning to use my speedlight flash. Thank you to all my subjects for being so patient with me as I figured out how to properly use my multiple flashes and light the scene. I also cannot thank the professors in the School of Visual Communications enough for teaching me all they possibly could to help shape my future as a photojournalist. It's exciting (and scary) to see what the future holds.
