Basic Photography Projects

And I figure for today I am going to do another photo blog this time showcasing my projects from my Basic Photography class where I used cameras that produced black and white pictures. Even though I have these photos on my Facebook photo page as well as on my Behance portfolio that I made last semester for my Communication Arts Portfolio, I figure I’d add them here as well. However if you want to check out that particular section of my portfolio, here is the link:

  • So anyway, here you go and enjoy. Hard to believe that my last year at Herkimer College is about to begin next week. :)

    Mama Cat Watches YouTube

    Today’s Throwback Thursday video is from 2008 and it is the follow-up video to the Cat in the Ceiling video I did with a cat we had at the time named Mama Cat (she had since died) where she is sitting in the chair watching herself on YouTube as well as the famous Two Talking Cats video.

    A Walk on the Erie Canal Trail

    In today’s Throwback Thursday video from 2010, I offer a video about the first time I went out for a walk on the Erie Canal Trail that runs from the old Fort Herkimer Church all the way to the Movac Ambulance headquarters near the Thruway entrance.

    The music in the video was provided by the late Nathan Wills: http://youtube.com/paradigma

    Roxalana Druse: The Forgotten Central New York Murder Case (Vlog)

    It’s that time again: Another Throwback Thursday video and today’s Throwback video is from 2010 where I talk about a dark chapter in Herkimer County history: The forgotten murder case of Roxalana Druse, a woman who was convicted of murdering her abusive husband in the late 19th century and whose case was eventually overshadowed by the Chester Gillette case.

    Also this week I reedited the original post for the blog portion of this story because my Yahoo Contributor Network account expires today. The link for it is right here:
