Danny Brennan (Person at Work)


As you can see from a lot of my posts I love taking pictures at sporting events. I decided to do the same for my person at work and take some pictures of the under appreciated referees. We see action shots of the athletes all the time, so here I took pictures of referees at work. We discussed how difficult it was to take pictures at the Chaifetz arena, well this was in a high school gym you can imagine the difficulty I had taking these pictures. What I do like about this photo is that I got the referee blowing her whistle signaling the beginning of the second half. I also like the little bit of layering I have with the court, people, and the bleachers. I also think this photo could be improved if I could get closer to the subjects.


Danny Brennan (Portrait)


I photographed my friend Laurie for the portrait shoot. During this assignment I had a major battle with the sun. This was around 6:00 PM at night so the sun was on its way down but was still very bright. This picture was my favorite because the sun was not so over powering. In my other photos it was half of the face sun and have shadow which didn’t turn out as good. This one I didn’t make her move at all I just changed my POV and had her look away from the sun so it was not so over powering, and I think it turned out pretty good.

Danny Brennan (POV)


This photo was my favorite from my Point Of View selects. I really wanted to take the viewer to a POV that they might not have ever seen before. In this picture I was right behind the first baseman receiving a throw from the second baseman throwing a runner out. I love how this photo captured the ball just before the first baseman caught it. Another aspect of this photo I really like is the layering from the foreground to the background.

We were given the opportunity to go out and take pictures of what ever we wanted. So I decided to head to the baseball field and take pictures of the team practicing. This picture is of two players playing some long toss. What I really like about this photo is the layering, with one player in the front, the outfield grass, the wall, and then the background. I really think it all comes together in that aspect. One thing that I think would make this photo better is if I had a faster shutter speed so I could capture the ball in better focus.

In the illustration photo I attempted to capture an image that shows something that is very cold and I was able to to this by taking this picture of the snow on the ground from a birds eye view. I like this photo because you can see the shoe prints on the ground that students made while going to class and obviously it shows that some of the shoe prints are turned to ice and is frozen on the ground.

Residents of the Shaw Neighborhood protest in anticipation of a Grand Jury Verdict in the case of Mike Browns Shooting by Officer Wilson. During a protest on south Grand Ave, a Metro bus attempted to turn around due to a blocked intersection on Grand And Shaw. The Bus subsequently broke down obstructing the street for three hours.

break awayI selected this Image because it illustrates the competitive nature of two athletes during a break away. While other players have long since given up on this play. these two young men continue to fight for the ball. The young man in blue is a Division one athlete at Saint Louis University and during the time of this photograph he was just two weeks away from having major surgery on his knee.
