Blessing of the Animals

I took photos and reported for this photo gallery on Pet owners brought their pets to the National Cathedral Sunday for the annual blessing of animals, which honors the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and the environment.


For this project I wanted to capture emotion, follow one person and try to capture action.  This man was attending the record exhibit at the Nasher Museum of Art on Duke University’s campus.


For this project, I wanted to capture depth.  I shot several angles of the train tracks in order to achieve depth in my pictures.  The receding planks of wood, metal pieces and rails add to the perspective of depth in these pictures.


For this project, I had to capture images that showed the rule of thirds. The construction workers stood in just the perfect spot for me to see them in a rule of thirds position.  I had a lot of fun playing around with this shooting, because I put the camera on the grass and shot up at the workers on the house, making them appear very lofty and distant.  Or for this particular shot, I stood up and shot the picture, so they seemed closer.
