This spring I was commissioned to photograph a memorial service at Arlington National Cemetery. When I was initially approached by the family about this job I wasn’t sure since I have yet to document a funeral.
Few weeks ago it was Camden’s (하은) 1st Birthday. The weather blessed the day allowing everyone to be outside to celebrate the event–more like a block party. We all had yummy Korean food, good drinks, and great time. Happy Birthday!
Photography for me is about capturing the moment as well as an opportunity to listen and experience new wonderful things–it’s similar to meeting a new friend. I was honored to photographed the presentation “Saving the White Lions” given by Linda Tucker. During the session I was photographing and listening to the presentation about the Whilte Lion their role in the natural habitat, they unique DNA markup, and ways to save them. It was really moving to be part of the gathering–Ms.Tucker spoke with genuine passion and love that I just wanted to visit their preservation ground.
NWSA (National Women’s Studies Association Meeting) recently had their Governing Council Meeting in Baltimore. My assignment was to go in silently take photos of the meeting and some group shots. The only encounter I ran into was the room was filled with 18 people and it was getting hot and I was sweating (oh man was it embarrassing). Mental note: not to wear a white shirt during a shoot in the summer.
