I really enjoyed going to the Denise McGill exhibit and seeing her photographs up close and in print. I was kind of nervous about asking her some questions but I found that when I actually started talking to her she was very personable and willing to answer all of my questions. The first question I asked her was if she found one subject more interesting/fulfilling to shoot. She said that of all the works she has done she really enjoys documenting the story of different refugee's. I also asked her if she just takes her camera out into her daily life and takes pictures for herself, not necessarily on a mission. She said that yes she did and more often than not she found that some of these photos turned into photo's she put in her exhibits. Then last question I asked her was what to do if a student, like myself, was limited by the ability of my camera, she assured me that point-and-shoot cameras were not that bad and in fact has shot some of the photos in her collection with a run of the mill point-and-shoot. I found the experience rewarding and am glad that I had the opportunity to observe such a talented photographer.

These pictures were taken at the Pinicle's, which is a state park-type of thing outside Columbia on highway 63. My family used to camp here a lot when I was little but I chose it as my un-familiar space because I hadn't been there in probably five or so years and things were bound to have changed... And they did!
These Pictures were all taken at the Stephens College Stables...
All in all I was not happy with the way most of the pictures at the barn turned out...The lighting wasn't that great and my camera was having a bit of trouble.
