Eastern defeats UT Martin

Monday’s women’s basketball game against UT Martin was one of the more exciting games this semester in terms of photography. I can usually come away from a game with a few good reaction photos, but yesterday seemed like a gold mine. It’s always exciting covering a game that keeps you on your toes, and I think I came out of the game with some decent photos. After looking at the photos, it also looked like some lights were replaced in Lantz Arena because the lighting was better than usual. For the full story check out Alex McNamee’s story in the Daily Eastern News here.

A few forgotten photos

With only about three more months until I graduate from Eastern, the job hunt has seized me in its clutches, and I’ve found myself going through some of my photos from the past year. As I went through them I realized a few of my favorites never made it to my blog.
