Diners and flags

I’ve shot over twenty assignments in the last four days, and somewhere among all those images I made a few that I’m pretty happy with. At most assignments, there are always the shots that you know you need to get for work, and then there are the images that you make for yourself. They might not be traditional newspaper fare, but something about them speaks to you as a photographer.

Some of the assignments I’ve had lately have given me room to be a little more flexible with that, whether it was the subject matter or the extra time I was given for the assignment. This is a bit of a sampler plate, pulling from three different assignments, but they were all made within the last week and are all images that I feel are indicative of my growing skill set. One or two of them feel like they are the “almost there but not quite” variety – like I knew what I was going for, but the pieces didn’t quite fall into place. But I’m glad to notice the improvement in my seeing.
