Well… I suppose this is it.  We’ve just finished our final exam with Chuck.  This has been a complete disaster of a week but I think I did fine on the exam.
This concludes my final class with Chuck Egerton and I feel kind of weird about the whole thing.  We’ve still got the group critique for the joint project today and one more class with James.  Then I’ll have something interesting to show.

And is today the 40th anniversary of the moon landing?  I heard it on NPR this morning and I’m not sure if I misheard it.

Last week, we went to the theatre here in Asheboro and James had some models arrive for some portfolio shots.  All in all, it was probably one of the more hectic shoots I’ve ever participated in.  I had a really neat shot lined up but it appears that my lighting was somewhat off, so this is the best of my usable shots.

I really loved the setup.  It sucks that so many of them turned out to have motion blur.  Oh well, you live you learn.

Assignment 3 for Chuck’s commercial class was a bit of a doozy.  It’s an executive portrait… of Chuck.  Chuck, our instructor who grades everything we do. Chuck, the man, the myth, the legend.

So this is a photograph of my instructor, Chuck.  For the record, while he refused to sign a model release, he did give me verbal permission to put this up on my blog.  So he can’t sue me, right?

Here’s Chuck!

Look at him!  Loooooook!
