Fans of Michael Jackson are spending this weekend celebrating his birthday near his childhood home in Gary, Ind. Happy birthday, Michael Jackson!
One of the assignments for BSU at the Fair was to shoot a photo series. I find people who work carnival games to be entertaining and mysterious, so I thought I’d turn the camera to them. Here’s just a few from my complete series. After a week of classes, I’m really starting to miss my daily lemon shake ups and the midway sunsets.
I spent roughly two days with the queen of the Indiana State Fair. Her name is Alyssa Garnett. She’s a college student, a sorority sister, a small town girl and the representative for the Indiana State Fair. These photos are a glimpse into her daily activities at the fair. I’ve kept the photos in the same order I originally presented them, as well as the same captions.
It’s been a week of lemon shakeups, various animal poop, and photography. I’ve been at the Indiana State Fair everyday since it started August 1st. I’m working with a group of other students from Ball State in a program called BSU at the Fair. We’re a mobile freelance media group that helps papers with content. If you saw any of my BSU at the Games posts, yes, it’s almost exactly like that. Only most people at the Indiana Fair speaks some form of English.
I’ve compiled some photos that I like that show the diversity in the sort of things I’ve been shooting. There’s been a cheer leading competition, a rodeo, and flat track. I’ve processed some photos in black and white. I’ve done long exposures. The list goes on. If it’s a big deal to Hoosiers, I probably have photos of it.
